    What they really want to hear is just the one

    word, "Fine" even if you are in the very pits of despair. Thats all people want to hear because anything more requires commitment on their part.

    It's easier to say you're fine

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

    It is an automatic response most of the time.

    The question "How are you?" is asked out of habit most of the time and I don't think most people really want to know how you are. When I say it to people who I think might actually care it is usually because I don't want to trouble others with what is bothering me. It could...

    I never realized how much I do say,

    "I'm fine" until I stopped and thought about it. I say "I'm fine" when things are.. and even when things aren't. It's a complicated thing.

    More than once, I have said “Im fine”

    when really, I am as far from fine as humanly possible. I guess I am so use to saying that I am fine, because it is so much easier to tell them that I am fine, than to tell them what is going on, and what is bothering. A Lot of times, I just don’t want to burden them with...

    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."

    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...
