Thought Questions, day #2: Who do you sometimes compare yourself to?

While reading Danielle’s blog Underland to Wonderland, I came across a post in which she talked about the website Thought Questions and their 365 thought-provoking questions to ask yourself over the course of a year. I decided that I would start answering one of the questions each day for the next year. Some days I might only have a few words to post, some days I might have a whole essay. Not only will this give me a reason to blog every day for a year straight, it will get my creative juices flowing–and I think it will be fun! If you join in please leave me a comment so I can see your answers too. :)

Day #2: Who do you sometimes compare yourself to?

Kristen Stewart. The girl gets so much mockery for being “grumpy” and not smiling, but as a fellow sufferer of Bitchy Resting Face (BRF), I feel sorry for her. Maybe she’s really sweet and likes to laugh, and no one knows it because her face just settles into this weird look all the time. Maybe she doesn’t realize how grouchy she looks while the flashbulbs are going off. Please don’t judge us just because we aren’t grinning from ear to ear 24/7.

See? Proof that she does smile.

    i don’t compare myself to any celebs, because i don’t think i look or act like any of them. i wish i was that beautiful, ha! but i get your sentiment–i hate when strangers ask me why i’m so mad, or SMILE BABY. ew.

    haha, and I’m probably the excessively smiley type…but it’s true, people just have different facial expressions that are “natural” or “normal” for them. My husband’s face lends itself easily to looking angry if he’s just thinking or not smiling…it’s those intimidating eyebrows of his. :P

  • The Dose of Reality

    BWAH HA HA HA! My sister and I have this conversation ALL THE TIME because we both suffer from BRF, too. We should probably have a fundraiser in our honor! ;)-Ashley

    Ha, my husband has the same face. People always ask him why he’s so upset and he’s like, “I’m not. This is my face.”

  • Jasmine

    My face does the same thing – sometimes I can even feel it! When people say “smile would-ya'” or “why are you so serious” I sometimes actually respond “because life is very serious!” if you are a stranger and going to make a comment like that – I’m going to say something back! I really like this question a day thing, I might have to jump in too :)

  • Pang Ly

    Hmm…I usually greet people with a smile and I like being around funny people cause I like to laugh. People usually think of me as a mild and calm person. I don’t compare myself to others. Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.

    • Martha Woods

      I don’t think it’s a bad thing. I’ve known people who compare themselves to others because they think they’re aren’t good enough “as is”, and it’s sad. It’s always good to be an original!
