    I do this all the time,

    and the reason for it is that I feel I don't want to ruin someone's day with my problems. That's a selfish thing to do in my book, I'll only tell people about my day when I feel they can help with what's bothering me.

    "How are you?" A seemingly common phrase

    nowadays, usually answered with a "Good." or a "Fine." or an "Okay." Sometimes if you're lucky, they'll ask the follow-up question "Are you sure?" I will usually sigh and reply, "I'm sure, but thank you." I plaster on a fake smile and continue on with the conversation if the...

    Yes, I Am Fine. :)

    Negative attitudes drain the whole crowd and hiding that we are sad can be a very good thing, but it's not easy. Questions are depressing when you don't learn how to answer them. You never know when someone will ask something new. That is why I try to look happy even if I feel...

    You Have To Get Hurt...

    Just stop! Stop saying you know me from my

    picture. Stop saying I have a great personality when you haven't asked any questions to know it. Stop saying you love me when you don't know me. Sure romance in movies is cool to think about but it's not real. There is no way I am going to fall in love with you through the...

    I'm Not OK Right Now

    This past year has been a super tough year for me. It all started out in November of 2012 with me having a crapload of responsibility and work dumped on me for no additional pay.  I eventually lost that job in July of this year.  Though I'm sort of employed right now, it's a...

    When ever someone ask me

    if I'm ok I say yeah. But I'm really not and make sure I keep my mask on. Sometimes it slips but I makes sure it stays on.

    I don't wanna gain sympathy by saying 'I am not okay',and to be honest it's just a question that no one actually cares for an answer,who cares whether you are okay or not! So we must keep repeating "I am fine,thank you",that's what we were taught to say in our childhood! :) We...

    I'm overweight and a reject in the gay

    community, the only guy that is interested in me is a "feeder" and wants me to gain 200 pounds so he can rub on my belly and I feel disgusted with myself. Wish I could make all my problems go away but until them I'm ok, don't worry about me

    All the time. Someone asks "How are you?

    " and I immediately respond "Okay." or "Good." simply because it's what I'm used to saying even if I'm not having a good day.

    It's reflex. I don't want people,

    Does Anyone Care

    Does anyone care? Does anyone honestly care? Judging by every move someone makes when they just want a friend. A sin made from the devil when they would like to produce a smile apon their face. To know you give a damn. Does anyone give a damn.. Anyone :/

    You ever have the feeling

    where your not okay, someone ask you "Are you ok?" You say you are but really aren't and you don't wanna talk about it? I feel like that most time people ask me are you okay. I don't talk about my personal business.
