There are so many reasons for bad days and so many different ways we respond to things not going our way.

Maybe your significant other forgot to do something you reminded them to do a hundred times. Or maybe it’s just that time of the month where you’re way more moody than you like to admit.

Whatever the reason, bad days happen to the best of us and there’s not much to do but react and try to move on. 

One thing we can all agree on is that there’s nothing worse than someone else telling you that you’re in a bad mood while you try to insist there’s nothing wrong.

I hate when others can tell I’m not at my best or that something is really eating me away.

While their intentions are good I just don't like to let my insecurities show.  

What are we doing that is giving away that we’re having an off day? Is it our body language? Is it something we said or simply how we’re acting?

How can we cover up when we’re not acting ourselves?

The thing is, maybe we cant hide how we react to a bad day because maybe our reactions are programmed into us from birth.
