We're Not Fine.

Everybody is always so ******* "fine"; but we are not. Sometimes we are hurt and bruised and nearly completely shattered, and this I'm afraid, is not even close to the definition of fine. You're not fine, because fine isn't even a word used for anything good anymore. Fine used to mean everything was okay, it was an empty hope; now it's just a shield to keep the world from knowing what's really going on. Nobody is fine, just remember that. Be kind to everyone you meet because everyone is going through a hard battle.

Fine is a word that people use to hide their true feelings. When someone says "I'm Fine" it usually means you didn't ask the right question... it means they have some other feeling deep down that they either don't want to share, dont know how to share or are afraid of being judged for feeling the way they do.

I am not FINE. I have thoughts, feelings and things going on in my life that are not FINE, they are painful, chaotic, sickening, depressing but sometimes I do have love and happiness, I wish I could reverse that to make Love and happiness my first feelings.

Nowadays fine means nothing. I mean is the standard socially accepted code we use when we meet: "Hi/Hi/How are you?/Fine,u?/Fine/News?/Nop,u?/Nop"
It's exhausting because even when we are with the people that are closest to us they just can't admit they have a problem. They won't deal with it. In society we are all supposed to be "fine" no matter what,we can't let others see us as weak or voulnerable. We can't express our feelings. I think is awful that we feel obliged to force a smile everyday and fake it 24/7. I understand that people don't want to show their pain in public: I don't either. But... it's nice to have a break sometimes.
And you're right we should keep in mind that others have a lot going on too and act better thowards others.
Thank you for sharing.
