SOMETIMES THE PERSON WHO TRIES TO KEEP EVERYONE HAPPY IS THE MOST LONELY PERSON
Hey guys! Welcome back to another post on Joi’s journey of perception! Now this post is not going to be as exciting and happy as many of my recent posts have been. But sometimes we need to have a discussion of things that make us uncomfortable to talk about. So I’m going to bring awareness to a topic that many don’t realize is important.
Sometimes it gets hard being the strong person in the friend group. Because as much as you smile, people don’t know the hurt and pain that you were throwing all day. I always tend to go out of my way to keep everyone happy and cheer them up and be there for them because deep down that’s something I want from someone.

I like having conversations with people of different ages and backgrounds. A lot of the times it’s with people who I don’t even know, but for some reason is easy for me to start conversations with people. And you really find out a lot about people. Things that she would not even Suspect. There are people who fight demons every day and you wouldn’t even know it just because of how happy they see them all the time. Which had me doing a lot of thinking. We, including me, I need to start being more empathetic with everyone. Because we don’t know what they are going through.
Lately, I’ve been watching this channel on YouTube where they go around and interview people on questions that are sometimes hard to ask. These questions to send to trigger people and bring up emotions and unresolved situations that they have hidden. A lot of this stuff has called me to think what am I hiding behind my smile every day. And I brought up this discussion with my friend of all the things that I buried deep into my brain.
I hope these videos speak some sort of message to you along with my words. Try to be more understanding of what people may be going through although you may not know what they are dealing with. Sometimes looks can be deceiving. People may be fighting battles that they don’t speak one. So occasionally check up on people, the simple words “how are you“ can go along way.
Thank you for reading this post! Please share, like and comment!
