I’m having trouble communicating with my bosses and co-workers because I sound/look dishonest about everything because I don’t truly care about anything. My face falls sometimes, I just can’t keep a happy face. I have to sound like I’m “excited” to do drywall. I don’t mind it, frankly I love that I’m finally working at least, but how excited do I need to pretend to be about everything? It hurts my feelings when people constantly ask why I seem unenthusiastic, to know I’m not really fooling anybody. I just wish I could sound happy, honestly I’ve noticed the fake it till you make it thing works. I can shift into a good mood eventually because a conversation will develop. But God I wish it was easier. How do you handle having to convince people you’re not secretly broken?
