I Always Say "im Fine"

This group is for people who ALWAYS answer "Im fine" in responce to "How are you?" 14,657 People

    All week long I've been saying it.

    "I'm fine thanks, how are you?" It rolls off the lips so smoothly and is so much easier than going into it. Well, I am fine today, thanks, but I haven't been for most of the last week. Something's been bothering me. We had a death in my family at the beginning of last week...

    So many of us automatically reply I'm fine

    when asked how we are, even though we're not. Yet, when a friend who is obviously not "fine" says it to us, how many of us take the time to insist, to ask how are you really? How many of us care enough to tell that friend: "Come on, this is me you're talking to. What's wrong...

    "I'm fine" I say to a friend

    who texts me to see how I'm doing... What people don't know is I'm a total mess. I'm behind in school which wasn't entirely my fault and now I'm having trouble getting caught up and finding the motivation to get out of bed everyday. I try to pull off the fact that I'm ok after...

    I constantly tell my friends

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

    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 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.

    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.

    I Hate Who I Am I hate what I see in the mirror.

    I hate my past. I hate my present. I hate everything I am. I go to bed every night wishing i can find 'my people' to fine love and magic. I feel as though I am not living and as though I am living in a dream I can't tell what is reality anymore. I starve myself because I am fat...

    more difficult than you would even want to imagine. I don't want to discuss it. If you want to know more about me I have written them in my experiences. They are not written out as a litany of events, rather highlights of events. I have done my best to convey my message and...

    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...

    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...

    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."
