When I posted these pictures a year ago, everyone commented on how happy I looked and they loved the smile on my face.
My relationship had traumatically come to an end two days before these pictures were taken.
This is the fakest smile.
I had just moved to start travelling, and I had two options; Stay in my hotel room and cry, or;
Force myself out of bed and get dressed
Force some fake enthusiasm to explore the country I am now alone in
I forced a fake smile.
Don’t always assume.
