I Always Say "im Fine"

This group is for people who ALWAYS answer "Im fine" in responce to "How are you?" 13,797 People

    It is just easier to say "i'm fine"

    when asked. No one knows the real me. I keep up my guard so I will not be hurt like I was as a child by my family. When I am hurt I need to walk away, process and try to face the issue. My husband on the other hand was taught to ignore the issues so this adds to our troubles...

    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...

    When ever my parents ask me how was my day I

    always say good or fine but really it was horrible I am considered a loser at my school but people aren't mean to me to my face but boy there are so many rumors about me like omg what did I ever do to them. Whatever when I turn 18 those jerks should probably have grown up.

    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...

    I always say "I'm fine"

    or "I'm OK". But one day I'm going to say "I'm not really fine you know..." and no one is going to know what to do.

    "nothing" And "i'm Fine"

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

    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...

    or I feel depressed or just not into it I can never bring myself to tell other people what's wrong. Therefore I always say "I'm fine". And on the rare occasion I do tell people I always end up crying which makes me feel weak and pathetic and I hate that feeling so is rather grin...

    "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."

    My earliest feelings of the phrase "I'm fine.

    " was just a lie to hold in my feelings, but now I use that phrase because it's to inconvenient and troublesome to explain whatever I'm going through or if I'm going through anything, which is the case for literally most of the time. I honestly find it even more troublesome when...

    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."
