I think it's often said but very difficult to find people who actually care to hear the answer when they ask it
I appreciate the concern, kindness, caring, compassion, empathy and sympathy implied in that question.
Sometimes I think "Yea I have a problem right now but I can't let them know that. I have to keep a strong face for them." But I usually tell them about it later anyways. I need some time to build up some courage.
I ask that sometimes when someone looks like they are having an issue, sometimes just because you don't kow what's wrong and it shows you care. Or sometimes if you don't kw what to say.
I think "hmm I will be".
I'd think one would be lucky to have people care enough to ask.
