I Always Say "im Fine"

This group is for people who ALWAYS answer "Im fine" in responce to "How are you?" 14,088 People

    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...

    This is me. Always.

    Unless I'm on here of course, then I say what I feel, some people don't understand of course, but oh well, I'll treat them with the contempt they deserve. :)

    "nothing" And "i'm Fine"

    When I usually say I'm fine and nothing, I'm usually not fine.

    Even when I am right I wish I was wrong,

    when I won I lost everything. and after, I hoped it would just kill me,yet here I stand, living in a broken world. I'll leave the pieces where they lay, it will help me remember the better life I had.

    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...

    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."

    Because I am... Really.

    My definition of not fine, is when you can't make it through a normal day. If I suddenly can't, I'll let people know. Having any other definition of "not fine" and it'll probably apply for the entire human race, and I don't want a poor cashier or bus driver hear me rant about...

    I realize I say I'm fine

    because I was taught never let other people see a weakness. I say it because in life I was built to be the strong one even when I have my weak moments. I say it cause I know in my bad moments it's always someone else going thru worse.

    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...

    Shoulders weighed down by my demons

    as they push me deeper into the pit, closer to the grave. I mend the broken wings and return the lost halos to the unknown angels of this forsaken world, I push hard to show them the power of their light, in hopes that in the end maybe my living hell won’t be so dark.

    Depression is not an act.

    Eating disorders are not phases. Homosexuality is not a disease. Self harming is not a cry for attention. Stop acting like you know everything.

    "Fine" is the ultimate cover up word,

    the perfect lie with a fake smile. But behind that smile isn't fine. Sometimes we say we're fine when we actually aren't. I use fine as a word to end conversation. 'How are you?' 'Fine, how are you?' and a little more small talk and then that's it. That's usually how it goes...
