I Always Say "im Fine"

This group is for people who ALWAYS answer "Im fine" in responce to "How are you?" 15,058 People

    Why do I always say I am fine

    even when I am not, I know a lot of other people do the same. Is it just because it's easier to say it rather than come out with a long drawn out truthful answer ?

    I say I'm fine when I'm not

    because people don't care how I'm feeling they just ask because it's the polite thing to do .

    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...

    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...

    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 m an introvert, and hate talking about

    emotional stuff, so no matter what, I will always say "I'm fine". I am sure that all the psycho babblers will says this is unhealthy, blah blah blah - but that is just how I am!

    I'm always sad, depressed, disappointed and feelings like that. I'm with some of my friends on a road trip and we are really having a good time I just don't know why sometimes I'm not happy. it's like something is missing, I hate that feeling. it sucks. I just want to stop...

    It's a very British expression.

    Your leg could be hanging off but if someone asks you how you doing its always "not bad" or "im 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...

    and I always was fine.

    Now I'm not fine at all . I feel a deep depression covering me and swallowing me. I don't know what to do anymore. I feel I could die and it would not remove the sadness from me.

    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...

    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...

    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 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."

    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!!!
