12 Feb The Importance of Smiling in a Relationship
When you’re in a relationship, you want to be happy, and you want the other person to be as happy as possible. One of the best ways to tell if someone is happy is by how often they smile. But facial expression does not always naturally reflect how a person feels about their partner. Often it is a reflection of how they feel about themselves, and specifically, how they feel about their smile.
Those of us who are fortunate enough to be able to spend Valentine’s Day with our loved ones have a lot to smile about. But we might not always feel comfortable smiling as much as we should. Thankfully help is available to make it easier to smile and feel confident more confident when we do.
Insecurity About Your Smile
Smiling may come more naturally to some than others, but smiling on purpose can have a positive effect on you. It can actually make your brain feel more joy, and stimulate the brain’s reward system even better than chocolate! A smile can help a person with low self-esteem find a more positive outlook, whether they smile or someone else smiles at them
Not everyone is good at smiling, and often the reason goes back to their teeth. According to the New York Post, more than half of Americans experience insecurity about their teeth. One poll showed well over half of the people covered their mouth during a natural laugh and routinely made an effort to smile only with a closed mouth. More than two thirds openly admit to having insecurities about their teeth for many reasons, including the whiteness of their teeth as well as any gaps or crooked or broken teeth.
