“Take care in what you say.”
A smile that is insincere can be a turn off. Saying, “Have a nice day,” without meaning it, does not go unnoticed. The person who was hurt or deceived probably won’t accept an apology with little depth.
We all have feelings. Nobody is unique. How your feelings affect what you say should not go unnoticed. It’s okay to be frustrated or mad. And, it’s perfectly normal and acceptable to express emotions. Just remember, when you do, be aware of how your frank expressions or your true feelings may make someone else feel.
Such awareness brings sincerity to your smiles and meaning to your greetings.
