Your smile looks good and genuine and I don’t think you need to change a thing – and thank you for your comment here; I wish everybody who says “Hi!

Mostly I keep working on myself. It’s a lifelong effort and worth it. Thanks for letting me ramble!
Mom didn’t take crap but wasn’t authoritarian either. Rules were few but important. I was honest with her unless it was something that I knew “she doesn’t wanna know” and I felt respected for my autonomy. I didn’t understand authoritarian parents at all.
