    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 constantly tell my friends

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

    Everyone I Know: "Hey Daniel,

    how are you?" Me: (In my head: Just awful. Why does everything have to suck so bad. Oh, the misery!) I'm fine, thanks. (Damn it, Daniel! You did it again!)

    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...

    It's easier to say you're fine

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

    Saying I'm fine isn't always

    because I'm secretly really not fine and I'm covering up how I'm feeling. But I say I'm fine when someone wants to know whats wrong with me and I don't feel the need to explain how I feel because most of the time the person doesn't understand your view or what you're trying to...

    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 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'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...

    Self-fulfilling prophecies ******* suck.

    I can say that I am NOT fine, I swear that some higher entity has brought this **** upon me just to watch. Like tearing the limbs off a bug and watching as it squirms and wait for it to bleed out. If I was a better person I would just run.

    It's hard for me to tell people how I really

    feel because I never know who I can trust. I'm the kind of girl that even if I was crying my eyes out and gasping for air, I'd still manage to say I'm fine.

    "Are you alright?" What I want to say: "No.

    I am sad, depressed, angry, nervous, mad, anxious, suicidal, and crazy. I want to cut, I Just want to sleep, I don't want to fake a smile any more. I am not alright and I just want a hug." What I actually say: "I'm fine."

    I always do in real..

    .yet I tried to change that at least online with people I know are open to talk about what moves my soul. In real it seems harder to see if someone cares to hear and will understand...so "I'm fine" gets served.
