Your face is stupid
Jing Jing

Yup. I can identify. With me it’s almost like a nervous tic. Like Tourette’s or something: I frequently say, “you’re a failure!” In my case, a good therapist helped me trace it to criticism I got from my mother that’s still working itself out in me. The message hasn’t gone away, but having that insight means it doesn’t have as much power over me.
