How do I start smiling and laughing more?

Hey guys ever since my depression lifted I have actually wanted to smile and laugh a lot more... But around people who are used to me being gloomy and angry I always slip back into my old self.. Because, I find that I show different sides of my self based on the expectations of whoever I happen to be around... Does everyone do this to some extent? Perhaps this is the crux of my question: how to ignore the expectations of myself from other people and have the courage to let my true self shine through?
But my question is, how do I remember to smile and laugh more (because it feels true to myself) and how do I start being the disnoaurprincess I am now around people who aren't used to it without freaking them out?
