What's real and what's not

I wish for honest and sincere appreciation. Not the sort of appreciation that gets thrown my way just because someone wants me to do something for them. That's not real. It's also not so I can strut around and brag to everyone what I've done to deserve the appreciation. If anything, I will probably just say thanks, then continue doing what I was doing. That's how I am. But just the thought of honest and sincere appreciation is something I'd appreciate in return.

I wear my heart on my sleeve. When I'm stuck in a bad situation, I can't pretend otherwise. A friend told me that maturity is being able to smile through the pain. But the way I see it, you can only smile so much before your real feelings will come out. So why not be real?
