Don’t be deceived by the smile. It may be a million pangs in disguise. It may not absolve one from the mistakes that one has unwittingly committed, and it does not blame one either.

A person who seemingly bounces back after being hit by adversity – with a smile – is the one who needs support the most.
He does not always need a shoulder to cry on or a listener for his woes.
He needs a silent wall that stays beside him, feeling him grieve, not a voice said between them, when silence is what he needs.
He needs a person who can banter the most irrelevant stories of the most insignificant times, when banter is what he needs.
And when he smiles to show the world that it has not broken his spirits, he wants him to smile with him.
