Does it really?
I am one those people who wakes up with a very dry mouth.
Naturally every word I speak makes me sound like a frog on acid.
I simply need some time to develop a regular tone.
To not sound like a creep, I usually smile to people in the morning.
Because, you know, a smile says more than a thousand words.
Some smile back.
Other would give me a sarcastic ” Well, a good morning to you too”.
Apparantly, my smile, doesn’t even say more than 2 words to them.
Another type is smile, is the digitale one.
We’d occasionally pop in a smiley to show how angry, in love or friendly we are.
A smile can be more genuine than a thousand words, indeed.
But is a smile always a confirmation?
You don’t sign a contract with just a smile.
And how many times we have heard “It wouldn’t hurt to hear you say that you love me”.
And if a smile would be enough, why they are so many “how to speak in front of an audience” courses.
I wish we could say everything with a smile.
But sometimes it’s just not enough.
