    Lovely way to express….surface acting means pretense – however with a good motive. I also believe in maintain ‘surface level relationships” with some of the my colleagues…a sort of hi and bye relation…Life indeed teaches us surface acting.

    What’s the use of schooling your facial expression? Hiding your true feeling from others? I couldn’t do it, it’s very hard to pretend because my eyes says it all.

    Yeah Glennda, i agree to your comment because no one can pretend if your feeling and your eyes will telling the truth and staying in bad mood just makes people feel even worse, so it is necessary to know how to get out of bad mood and its better to tell the truth than to hide it.

    for me …I am learning to forgive ‘myself’ for my bad moods. Forgiveness for others is wonderful and requires commitment and willingness but forgiveness of ourselves is often a little more difficult. ..thanks for sharing,,….

    Sorry, but I find it very difficult to hide a bad mood – I tend to were my heart of my sleeve. Strangers may not see through the smile and happy chat but anyone who knows me always will!

    Also known as the “social mask.” We all do it. I don’t think it’s emotionally tiring, we’ve all been building up our surface acting skills since childhood!
