I Always Say "im Fine"

This group is for people who ALWAYS answer "Im fine" in responce to "How are you?" 14,824 People

    Specially when I'm not.

    I wield my "I'm fine" like a shield, protecting my heart and my sanity, keeping the pain locked away in some secret location I never visit. Those of you who have been strong for too long, who have held back too many tears, who have woken up with drenched pillows or waited for...

    There once was a little girl,

    who was taught her mother's mantra, or more so, drilled into her 6 year old mind... "do not tell." "Do not tell that I left you alone overnight, while I went off with a man to drink and do the things 'adults' do." "Do not tell you haven't eaten anything except bread with...

    I constantly tell my friends

    that I'm Fine and it hurts me to know that they believe it without suspicion.

    Im too stubborn to let other people help me.

    I dont want to be a burden. I wish i could do it myself. I know i cant do it myself, but i dont have anybody to tell... Exept my parents, but they never listen... Sometimes i wish the world made me feel important and loved. I feel ignored.

    Today is one of those days you just can't share

    how you really feel. It would ruin all of the great happy moods around me. So much to be happy over yet all I see today is darkness and sadness and evilness. I wish on days like today I never had the experiences of my youth. Too much!!!

    even though something is seriously wrong.

    I don't want people to worry about me. I have decided. when I'm gone. I don't want anyone to have to pay for my mistake.

    I say I'm fine when really I am fine. But there are times when I say I'm fine but inside I'm really hurt and just want some one to understand me

    I have a love/hate relationship with the phrase

    "I'm fine." I say it when I mean it; I say it when I mean the opposite. Because, let's face it - when someone asks how I'm doing, it's not polite to say "Inside my head, a blood-curdling scream is drowning out my thoughts." So instead, I say "I'm fine."

    I actually cannot remember the last time

    that I was honestly fine. It's difficult to always be that person that people can lean on, especially when you have no one to lean on. Maybe if I continue saying it I'll speak it into existence.

    If you're not fine, don't say you are.

    Especially if you expect people to help you. People will listen to what you say if you say you're fine. No one can read your mind. Speak up.

    It's easier to say you're fine

    rather than explain what's really going on to someone who really doesn't care.

    I am going to run, it will not be far enough.

    I am going to laugh, it will be forced. I am going to let my mind wander, it will always choose you. I am going to hurt, in the shadows where none can see. I am breaking and I have not the strength nor the willpower to hold myself together.

    That feeling when someone asks

    if you're okay and you nod saying you're fine when you're really not. You hold back a tear and swallow hard with that lump in your throat, wishing someone knew how you really felt.

    I always say that when people ask me.

    I could have the deepest depression ever and would still say that I am fine. I just don't want to bother others and also don't really trust anyone. Got lied to, too often. And when I am sad I normally don't want to talk to anyone... That is why I always just say that I am fine...
