Need a smile
Organized by: Anonymous Person
I don't know how this will work out, but a friend sugeated I do this. I'm a 34 year old father of 3. My finances are extremely tight. We survive paycheck to paycheck, and even then, we struggle. I try to put money back when I can to save up, but something always intervenes,and I have to use the money for more pressing issues such as food, bills, vehicle problems, or to simply supply for my family. Since I was little, I've had bad dental issues, and it finally became bad enough that I had to have all my teeth removed. I know it may not seem important to some, but to myself, it's disturbing. I feel imbarrased and judged. I've never been able to flash a smile at someone, not a real smile. I'm afraid to talk to people because I know they will see. I go to job interviews and I know they think I'm some sort of an addict, but this is not the truth. Maybe many of you will read this and probably laugh, or judge, or think I'm full of it, but I'm hoping that even just a few might find compassion and maybe even know what I'm going through from your own personal experience. All I want is to be able to look at myself in the mirror and not feel like I'm trash, or an outcast in society. If your willing to help, the only thing I can offer in return is my grattitude, and maybe if we should by chance pass eachother on the street, or in the local grocery, i can offer a friendly smile. God bless..
