I'm fine

by laxamanaysa

We all say this even if you're not.

The lie slipped so effortlessly.

She was used to it.

She was still surprised on how easily people believe it...

You feel frustrated, lonely, ignored, in agony, angry

Sad, hurt, upset, and humiliated.

You just don't want to be yourself anymore.

You hide all your scars with these 2 words and 6 letters.

Yes, I smile. But it doesn't mean that I'm fine.

It's not like you care.

You can't break me, because I've already been broken.

You just wish that for once, someone might look at you in the eye and see how broken you are.

And at the end of the day, someone might ask,

"Are you okay?" and you just whisper since you can't take it anymore. "I'm fine" (Broken)

I admire your artistic perception and writing ability. "I'm fine" is more of a reflex than a thought. I thought about that several years ago. I experimented. I am infamous for my experiments on living human subjects. I would ask "How are you?" They would reply, "I'm fine." I would say, "Sorry to hear that." My remark would pass totally unnoticed 98% of the time. I also experimented with telling people exactly how I was doing. Nobody wanted to hear that. They realy didm not care.

Many moons ago i asked my therapist why he never greeted me with "how are you?" I really appreciated his answer; "If you were fine, would you be here?" I hope people read your post since it is so heartfelt and relevant. People most often don't want to hear the answer to their "how are you" questions; the phrase has become an impersonal greeting and most move on before one can even consider answering sincerely or truthfully. I don't blame them, most people are so stressed with their day-to-day busyness that their own stuff fills their cranial cavities. Thank you for saying what many are thinking.

So true. "Good" "I'm fine" all the default responses that hide what we really feel
