Daily Prompt: Superficial
A superficial smile is nothing new that I am talking about. It’s been experienced by every single person. It’s a disguise worn by almost all of us for a reason pertaining to the given circumstance. A superficial smile is the most lethal weapon used to hide the truth; however, not always it is for dislike or harm but it’s all according to the existing situation that one is in.
Superficial is indeed fake and we all have been through this fake expression not once but multiple times. Remember those door-to-door marketers, those businessmen, those shopkeepers and many such people who will do anything and everything for the sale of their products and the first gesture they would give is a superficial smile. A cunning opportunist, a fake friend pretending to be a good one to you, a relative with selfish motives as well as many times a family member eyeing on you for some benefit, all these wear a fake, a superficial smile always to fulfil their greed.
In this world of self-centered and ego-centric people, it is tough to find true and honest human beings because everybody’s true identity is actually hidden behind their superficial appearance. It is good to have that superficial smile if it is only and only for the good of someone as it won’t harm or hurt other’s feelings. The superficial expressions will one day fade away and what will be left is the kindness that you have grown within yourself. So, be kind and have the courage to make the best use of this life that God has gifted you.
