"Are you OK?" It's the question that's the bane of my existence. I get it everyday, from cashiers to overly concerned random people I'll meet at a party, and the answer is always the same: "Yes." I guess the only problem, really, is my face. My resting bitch face.

I'm not an angry or a sad person. The problem, literally, is my face. The neutral face that was passed onto me by my ancestors that I've been cursed to live with for the rest of my life has made me look like a chronically angry person.

But, to be completely honest, having a resting bitch face has saved me so many times in life. I may look sad all the time, but my resting bitch face has actually brought me a lot of happiness. Unapologetically, I love my face, and everybody with resting bitch face should too. Here are 10 reasons why:
