There has probably been a time in your life, sitting in the dentist chair, when you told the hygienist that you flossed daily, but you really didn't. Who did you think you were fooling? It's obvious to the dentist that you haven't been flossing.
Dr. Robin says that just as the hygienist can tell what we've been doing or not doing with our dental care, people can look at our lives and can tell whether or not we're happy or depressed, joyful or bitter. "No matter how cool we think we are, how well we think were hiding behind our plastic smiles, our well-dressed selves, the truth of the matter is your anger, your bitterness, your depression, your frustration—you can't hide it," Dr. Robin says.
We can run, but we can't hide from the truth, Dr. Robin says. Instead of lying about our feelings, let the truth of who you are surface.
