Is it Even Possible to Always be Fine? So Why to Answer Every HRU as 'I'm Fine'??
How are you?
I am fine, thanks
How are you?
I am fine too and the conversation goes on like this...
When I was a kid, my mom taught me, if someone asks you: how are you; u have to say I AM FINE When I went to school my teacher taught me the same.
How strange is this? We were never taught that there can be different answers to this question,"HOW ARE YOU?"
Did you Ever Answered Anyone How Do you Exactly Feel?
From a very young age we are taught to keep our feelings to ourselfs. Thus, the answer to the question always comes as 'I'm fine even if we aren't...
Say what you feel
Instead of telling kids to express how they actually feel, we make them cram I AM FINE and years later those kids robotically answer the same for every HOW ARE YOU? asked in their life!
Weather you are happy, sad, depressed, suicidal or feel numb, there is just one thing on the tip of our tongue, I AM FINE.
Never Teach your Children to Expect or Say 'I'm Fine' if they are Not!
I wish parents and teachers not anymore teach that answer of every HOW ARE YOU? to be I AM FINE.
I wish kids are raised to be more vocal about their feelings from a very young age, so they are mentally healthy as adults !
