The history of the sad face
A lot of people are surprised to learn that even ancient cultures understood the importance of emotions. In fact, some traditions claim that emotion is actually what makes us human.
We can understand others’ feelings (and their understanding of us) by paying attention to their body language and tone of voice. We get clues about someone’s emotional state from observing their facial expression, posture, words, and demeanor.
In short, we can figure out how someone feels by looking at his or her lips, but not necessarily its content. Many beliefs exist around predicting an individual’s reaction pattern from their face.
For example, researchers once theorized that you could tell something was bothering someone if they had puffy eyes. But this theory has been proven false over and over again. People with puffy eyes have often given entirely different accounts of why they were experiencing pain/discomfort.
Researchers also used to believe that everyone’s smile was proof that they was happy – until they conducted experiments to measure participants’ responses to various stimuli. These studies showed that although most individuals responded positively to seeing another person smiling, many did not feel comfortable engaging in that same behavior.
The underlying cause of your friend’s depressed mood may be economic rather than psychological. Perhaps she lost her job recently; maybe he was injured while working and now has difficulty finding employment. Whatever the case may be, help her remove the causes as soon as possible.
How to make a sad face
Here are all the different places you can draw your eyes (if you don’t want to use a cartoon character).
Note that there is no single place where your mouth will be, so if you want to make an unhappy expression, you’ll have to do it with one of these faces.
And as for how long it will take to make each face, that depends on your drawing ability.The more faces you need to make, the longer it will take.
Also, some of these faces require several layers of skin to capture their essence.Make sure you know which ones you want to try!
Some things that make you sad
There are lots of things in life that can make you feel sad or unhappy, but don’t let these things hold you back from doing something else!
Maybe your world is not going as planned right now, and you are having trouble adjusting to this change.
Perhaps you are disappointed with how some aspect of life is currently running; maybe it feels like everything is coming up roses while you try to go after what you want.
Don’t focus on why you can’t have what you want, but rather look at the other people in your situation and understand their perspective. Most people get little luck in life, and they don’t put themselves in others shoes – but if you really need to, then do so.
Next, know that everyone has a limit for how much pain they can take in life, and that includes you. If you push yourself too hard, you will fail.
It’s simple physics. You cannot expand horizontally when you lift something vertical. Weight training is very important for most people, because it increases your strength across all areas of your life.
With weight lifting, you will find that you are more confident about your abilities to deal with situations, and this helps us move forward in our lives.
However, keep exercising every day regardless of whether you are working out or not. Exercising boosts metabolism, which helps your body process foods and fuels more efficiently
What is a happy face?
A sad face is one of the most common facial expressions people display. It’s what you use when you are feeling low or depressed. But how can someone possibly be unhappy? Well, it depends on the situation.
If you feel down, there are ways to get out of that state of mind. The first step would be to realize why you were experiencing happiness in the first place.
Was there something happening in your life at the time? Or was it simply because you wanted to behave that way? For example, if you want to have fun, then being able to laugh is a good thing.
But if you were upset about something, then finding a moment to relax and just breathe gets you back into a happier mood.
What is a weird face?
A weird face is made of two eyes, one nose, and one mouth placed together in an unusual way. Most often, both eyebrows are missing, so you can only see her/his eye color. Also, his or her mouth is sometimes wide open, instead of curled up like it is supposed to be.
Finally, there may be some strangeness at the ears–maybe just a lump where they should be, or maybe with ear “spikes” that stick out wildly.
This character might have crooked teeth, too. But these are all coincidental! 🙂
The main reason people think something is weird is because they don’t know what it is. They only got part of it off-model (see how this works here).
Why do I use these faces
It’s easier to relate to someone who is familiar, especially if they are recognizable. These could be your friends or family members (if you don’t feel comfortable using their face), another character from a movie/book, or even a famous person in some other form.
The important thing to remember when creating one of these characters is that it should be true to what they look like. If you have never seen them before, how would you describe them? Would you say something like “she has white hair”? Or might there be a chance that they could also be described as having brown eyes and no lips?
If you aren’t sure what to put for skin color, maybe try looking up all possible descriptions and coming up with your own conclusion. Then write down what each unique characteristic sounds like.
How to make a happy face
Even if you don’t work with cartoons, you can still use this method to improve your mood. This technique is called “power posing.” It was developed by researchers at Harvard Business School as a way to assert power in an increasingly competitive world.
In a series of studies conducted between 2013 and 2017, they found that when people performed at their best during a challenge, it increased their satisfaction with their life overall.
Power posers display confidence in themselves by making efforts — rather than spending money — to achieve goals. They look at failures as learning experiences and consider them part of what makes them who they are.
They feel more desire for success and try harder things. What’s more, positive psychology research has shown that we perceive threats and challenges in our lives as reminders to strive for better outcomes.
That is why losing a job or being fired can lead to feelings of deprivation and anxiety — because one status in life has changed. You have to start thinking about how to move forward without any reference to these past circumstances.
And here lies the problem. When we are feeling deprived or insecure, it is difficult to function at our best capacity.
With such negative emotions running around inside us, it’s no wonder that we aren’t performing at our best.

What you’ll need
You will need a screwdriver to open the can of who-is-the-cartoon-character-that-always-says-she’s-hungry.
There is no way around it—you have to eat who for best results. Figure out how much money you want to spend on food, then go buy what you need.
This includes buying new clothes (if you plan to stay home and watch TV) or going out to dinner.
Who works well as leftovers foods, snacks, drinks, and sandwiches. To really stretch your dollars even more, try purchasing groceries online.
More about that here.
What is a frown face?
A frown or sad face is an expression of one’s feelings, often showing disappointment or sadness. It is a very common facial feature that accounts for anyone looking unhappy.
But if you look more closely at those instances where someone displays their emotions with a frown, you will find many differences between how they behave and what he feels.
When someone cries, it usually involves some sort of pain (physical or emotional). When they smile, they are displaying happiness (again, physical or mental), but both scenarios involve emotion to some degree.
A person who is happy may still have something bothering them, and vice versa. So although a smiling person might be considered “happy,” so too would a crying person be called “moved” or even “tears.”
It all depends on whether or not this is a clearly joyful experience or if there is additional element involved. Smiling without feeling anything is just plain joy. Crying when you feel bad is normal as well.
Practically speaking then, being aware of your tendency to make faces falls under the category of social awareness. People who see each other frequently may notice that you do one thing a lot – laugh loudly, raise your eyebrows, shake your head-and assume you are always thinking about something funny.
Others may get the impression that you don’t trust people or are generally quiet and stony in appearance.
