i’d like to finally address something i’ve been dealing with for most of my life. the photos i usually post on here make me seem like a happy-go-lucky person but that is simply not the case. the above photo is how i look 95% of the time when i’m in public.
please support victims of Bitchy Resting Face. i swear i’m not pissed right now. it’s just my face.
i, too, suffer from this lifelong ailment. thank you for spreading awareness. throughout my life, i have been sent to the principals office three times for “glaring” at other girls in the hallways. i say “listen, this is just my face.” and they do not hear me out. thank you again for spreading awareness
I am a rare male sufferer of Bitchy Resting Face. Maybe it’s because of the arch in my eyebrows or the natural droop in my eyelids, but more than once i’ve gotten into beef with other guys because of my face. I’ve even been accused of plucking my eyebrows to look angry. Please, help us help ourselves.
the responses to this post have been so inspiring. i’m overwhelmed with the support and unity. together we can find a cure.
You can’t control why someone picked you. As much as I’d like to think I got into my alma mater purely on grades, essays, SAT scores, and recommendations, I’ll never really know. What I do know is that it didn’t hurt that I was black and a good student. And the only thing I could control was leaving that environment unequivocally not as quota filler, but as an irreplaceable spoke in the wheel.
