You Alright?

"Hey, you okay dude?"

I look up at whoever asked, I don't really remember who it was that time nor do I care. "Yeah, I'm fine. How are you?"

That's pretty much how that question goes for everyone, regardless of what they're really feeling or thinking. The funny thing is, even though everyone knows that when someone say's they're alright it could mean they're pissed or sad or in denial or conused (or alright, for that matter), most people accept "Yeah, I'm fine." as an honest answer and don't push any further. I think it's just because when someone asks "How are you?" they don't really care about how you're feeling or how things are going for you, they're just saying it because everyone else is always saying it and it's become what your supposed to say. I know I don't really care about what people are up to most of the time, why should they really care about me?

I know how that is. I am always pretending that I am doing fine. Nobody ever pushes me either. But eventually it gets harder to act like everything is fine when it really isn't. I almost cried today at school even. I rarely ever cry so when I do its because something is wrong and nobody noticed anything.
