happiness around the world

強くありたい。I want to be strong.

I want to be strong. If I think I am weak, I feel like being weaker. Nothing will be changed to me.
I don't want to be depressed easily. Because I believe that there is always someone who would care about me if she/he knows I get depressed. I don't want them to be sad, definitely. Maybe it's just in my mind. Nobody would care about me.
Still, I prefer to pretend to be happy even I'm not. I hope my smile would make someone happy someday. Then I will be happy.
Some may say I'm hypocrite. But it's true that I like people. For that reason, I want to be strong.

強くありたいと思う。
たとえそれが思い込みであったとしても、私が悲しんだら悲しむ人が1人でもいるならば、私は強くありたい。
もしも私の笑顔が誰かを幸せに出来るならば、嘘でも笑っていたい。偽善者と言われようと。

一人の人が、これを考えさせてくれました。感謝します。

    You are strong. There are people who care about you, I being one of them. Your smile does make people happy. Why do you say these things about yourself... You do more for people than you know. Cheer up Reiko, happiness around the world, right?

    Friendship is a two way street Reiko, Your friends like you when you are happy, but they will also still like you when you are sad, and when you are sad, they will do their best to cheer you up, just as you would do for them.

    Perhaps because of your job, you always feel the pressure to show a positive mood, but when you are with friends you should be able to relax and "let it all hang out".

    If you have a problem, share it with friends, maybe they can help you. They/We won't think less of you.
    If you can't share your problem with friends, share it with strangers or on the internet (with a fake name).
    :-)

    ありがとう。

    matt,
    yes, happiness around the world. i was just pesimistic at that time. sorry, but thank u so much for your cheering. as we talked, we sometimes think other's happiness first, which is good. at least a few friends know me, that's completely fine. I am thankful fot that too.

    Ben,
    You are right. Just as i do for my friends, they cheer me up too. I definitely can share my problems with my friends. So I don't really need to show on the internet. :) Thanks for all the things you've said.
