for all of you saying how ugly you look wen you smile:
your smile is beautiful. no matter what you think.
beacause it means you're happy, and everyone deserves that right.

I feel the same way sometimes, ST, but don't let it restrain your feelings. A smile can make your day, and make you feel so much better. :)

you may think you may look less attractive when you smile, but other people don't. being attractive isn't just about looks, it's about personality. smile, and you will be prettier. It's actually proven taht people find you like...20% I think more attractive when you smile. so go ahead.

You know, you might think it doesn't suit you, but a smile is always, ALWAYS, more pleasant than a serious face. I have a friend who thought the same and never smiled on pics; she looked sad and angry and kinda ruined all our trip pictures. No matter how your face looks laughing, don't forget that people think what you reflect on the outside is what you are on the inside; they will always see you as depressed and it might drive them away. So show it when you're happy, 'cause everyone else will be too. :D

kind of wish i did the same

... *Hug*

Please smile...? ... People who don't smile make me worry, and I want to make them happy. It's beautiful to see somebody smile... Literally. External beauty I don't even notice, but internal beauty - a warm personality, or an amusing moment or even like I said, just a smile, can and will make my day. A smile is far more powerful than beauty. <3 And smiles help you be happy.

You're not nothing. That's the one thing you're not... Everybody is something, and that something can grow into a beautiful something with a little watering. Hope makes for the best water, I find. <3

my brother's wake was tuesday
if there's one thing i realized during it, it's that a person doesn't own their body
it isn't a part of you, it's not yours
when you leave this world
your body stays behind while your spirit moves on
so why let the way you look affect the way you live your life
it's not worth it
so be happy...laugh and smile because you're enjoying the moment, enjoying life
It hurts when I smile :(

"Happy girls are the prettiest." --Audrey Hepburn.

I don't believe that you're ugly. Smiles are beautiful.
IndigoSkyes Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Smiles are beautiful. Even if you think you're "ugly," remember that beauty has nothing to do with what they show you in magazines.
Zelthie Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010
I was the same way... Until people told me to smile and laugh more. <3 Showing emotion is more beautiful than any vocal or body structure. People will think you are beautiful. :]
DthNtDty Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010  Student Traditional Artist
I was sort of like that. I tried not smile in pictures. I thought I looked fat/ugly/old. (which was ironic since I was a little kid, but yeah)
KalineReine Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010  Professional Writer
Wish I could do that. My face looks fat no matter what I do, but I think it looks fatter when I smile.
XxPrincessHannahxX Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010
...You aren't nothing, ST. You are awesome. :heart:
Leahh23 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
The smile shows your personality, go on ;) :)

This could have been me...
cinty-insanity Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010
doesnt sound like much of a secret. i hope your not regretting it now, because you probably will, if thats become a habit.
you shouldnt care what you look like; every smile is a smile, pretty or not =D
Smily-Execution Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010
I think you're beautiful when you smile because a smile is the most beautiful asset anyone could ever have. Don't forget to smile.
Azmythera Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010  Student General Artist
I used to think that when I smiled, I was hideous because of my braces, my dimples and of course, the way my eyes squinted a little so I just looked that much more asian. But really, no one notices those flaws. And if they do, most people accept that flaws like that are natural! Now I believe EVERYONE looks beautiful when they smile, ST.
And even if you don't think so, hold out for someone who will think so.
Best smiles on deviantART.
Alfredoproductions Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I got me some big ol' round cheeks when I smile too hard P: shit sux man
GreenFaerie13 Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010  Student Photographer
aww. it makes me so sad to read this and all of the comments. even if you don't literally look as good, people tend to radiate beauty when they look happy.
just keep that in mind. <3
Rescue-Is-Possible Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
ST, you are not nothing. You are everything. We all are everything. and smiles can never be ugly, they're so beautiful and full of joy no matter who is giving them.
edgarallenpwn Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I feel the same way about my smile.
Nightmares2Come Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I agree with that to an extent but sometimes it's just so much fun to smile.
I love the way this secret was set up. Creative ST
TheDarkerDream Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I hate how I look when I smile, laugh, etc.

But everyone I know tells me I have a beautiful smile. And I'm sure you do too, ST. =)
Omega23 Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
I bet there's someone out there who thinks you're beautiful when you smile.
angelsbride Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2010
I think I am that person. I bet ST would look nice if they smiled.
teardownthefence Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I'm the same way, but I have learned to smile and laugh as long as pictures are not being taken. It makes me happy enough so that I don't care what people see, as long as it's not captured on camera.
megzlilpegs Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
there is nothing more beautiful than a smile, try it st :]

Some fun smile facts:

Babies are actually born with the emotional fabric to smile when feeling pleasurable, as proven by observation of blind infants.

While smiling generally takes less muscles than frowning (as few as 5) it can also use up to 53 muscles!

Young people tend to smile more easily and openly than older people, and of all smilers, more are women than men. In fact, studies have shown that American males with high testosterone levels smile the least of all.

Researchers who study smiling are called gelotologists.

And my personal favourite:
Smiling releases endorphins in the body, which makes people feel better.
That's right. Just smiling can make your day better. In fact, I make it my goal to smile to myself in the mirror every morning.

I hope one day you can get past this stage and realize that nothing in the world is more beautiful than a smile.

I love the last one :aww: that's awesome
Kenyahp666 Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
Strangely enough, I would probably think you are most gorgeous when smiling and laughing. Because, to me, its not what your physical appearance is, its the wonderful and warm feeling seeing people smile that makes me think they are beautiful. Does that make sense? I just really like happy people...
TheFabulousMomo Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I understand what you mean. I got everything wrong going on with my smile, and for the majority of my life I was ashamed to laugh or smile. But let me tell you this: when you smile, sincerely, a part of you glows. Don't be ashamed of smiling. The act of smiling is filled with natural beauty itself =) :heart:
Kassy-kat Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
subliminal messages!
or is that just hidden messages?
jadegreenaura Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I understand. My teeth are super disfigured so for a while I didn't smile because I didn't want to show them. I eventually stopped that though kuz no one noticed or at least they didn't care :D
LukieK Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I know how that feels.
A smile can really light you up, though. It shows the beauty in your personality.
Urgh that was cheesy. Sorry 'bout that.
Kellatrix Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I know how you feel. But what I learned about that is, no matter how ugly you think you look, more people will approach and like you if you smile more. I'd rather look unattractive and have people enjoy my company, than be beautiful and seem totally aloof.
gaarakamaru Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I agree with this. :3 My crooked teeth and braces mean I'm not exactly an oil painting when I smile, but I do it anyway. x3
Hizaku Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I know exactly what you mean.
My face looks terribly ugly when I smile or laugh.
TheBulletAlchemist Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I feel the same way hon :hug:
Ashy-Rawr Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
i know how that feels
i hate how i look when i smile
