Although no one responded to my smiles, I started to feel better.
Even members of the mysterious, different, and completely disconnected Fore tribe use smiles in the same situations and to convey the same meanings as you or I do.
smiles are universal and that they touch something fundamentally human.
I noticed that when I smiled, I felt better and more confident, and that a genuine smile could change the way people looked at me even if they didn’t know me.
