Default What's your relaxed face like?

I've been told more than once in my past that I looked upset when it was really just my relaxed face - maybe I was upset with anxiety and nerves, actually. Once a teacher just flat out asked: "*Eam*, have I done something to upset you?", when I was just concentrating on the lesson being taught.

It left me feeling self conscious that people are noticing it during conversation ever since. I do my best now to hold a smile, but I still feel like people are noticing it, or they're noticing me forcing it.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not a misery guts! Whenever I'm happy I show it, same goes for laughter. I love to laugh and smile actually - it also stops me feeling self conscious about my relaxed face!

Anyways, what's your relaxed face like? Happy, sad, serious, emotionless, upset, angry, Cheshire-Cat-like?

Mine looks either sad or mean. That's how people always see me, even if I'm not feeling either way. Even when I'm in a good mood, people see me as depressed or mad/mean.

Like this:



lol I don't know really what my face looks like when I'm relaxed. Probably just neutral, but deep in thought

I have had people assume that i am upset when i am relaxed too. I was once sitting on a bench in a shopping mall when i was 17, feeling relaxed and eating my sandwich on my lunch break, and a complete stranger walked pass me and said "cheer up, its not the end of the world"......So i guess my relaxed face must look sad.

Probably neutral or too serious. But I've been told before that i look upset, I've been asked if i'm angry too. Seems that I fail at masking my mood :c

I know exactly what you mean. I was once walking down a corridor and a girl said 'Cheer up' or 'Smile', so I awkwardly tried to force a smile, to which she replied something along the lines of: 'A smile, not a smirk', and walked off.

If only I were Totoro.
