I won't force you to smile. seriously, that's cringey.
instead, i'll tell you a joke, or say some silly things to help you ease into it. be warned that i can make some pretty corny jokes and toss in some puns here and there. i'm not sorry about that though.
but if you want to cry, cry! weep you beautiful heart out! scream! yell! RUN AROUND! whatever. be human. i always tell this to everyone, not just people i work with, but even friends and family. just. be. human. you don't need to showcase a persona with me. you don't need to pretend to be someone you're not. show me your wild, true colours, whether they are vibrant or bleak. i want to see them. i want to capture them. and i want to show how they are just as beautiful as the person exuding them.
