    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.

    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...

    Even when something is bothering me

    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...

    I really want to go to a doctor

    and get tested for depression and an anxiety disorder. I've done all these tests online because it's the closest I can get to the real thing. My depression results came in as moderate/severe and when I did the anxiety disorder test I got a 76 which is the second higher score you...

    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."

    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.

    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.

    "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."

    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...

    "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...

    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.
