The Beauty Behind A Smile

Justina Demetry

One of the most beautiful things on this planet is seeing someone smile. I think if everyone worked a little bit on being there for others or just simply smiling in the halls instead of having a frown the world would be a better place. I hope to be able to spread this message in myself and my actions, and push others to do good by the guidelines I set for myself.

You never know what people are going through and the simplicity of a smile can help brighten someone’s day.

Before judging someone think about what they are going through or what you would do if you were in their shoes. Learn to think twice before deciding to make a comment  about someone. Kindness is a chain reaction and the more you spread positivity the more others will too. You never know who is going through a heartbreak or what they deal with at home or if they are suffering but trying their hardest. It’s the simple things that can make someone feel a sense of hope or happiness such as a smile, wave, or a simple “Hi, how are you?” I want to spread kindness to everyone, and want to be an example of that in life.

Over the years I’ve felt what it’s like to be watched and to not be accepted or not even feel good enough and I never want to put anyone through the pain of it. I want to offer love and support  to everyone because I want everyone to feel like they WILL make it and they WILL be okay. I can’t speak for everyone, but I can speak for myself and I hope that after reading this I have inspired people to just stop and think before laughing at or judging someone.

Many students and teachers here at Westborough High have taught me the beauty and importance of kindness that I will carry with me throughout my life.  Doing good things and brightening someone’s day is a form of kindness that people will never forget, and is something everyone should open themselves up to. I hope to influence and care for the people around me in the best way possible. Kindness is the language that ANYONE in this world no matter race, gender, religion, disabilities can speak and help spread–please consider spreading kindness.
