FINE usually means Feelings Inside Not Expressed! I read this and thought very interesting and very true. How often have you been in some kind of emotional or physical pain when someone close to you asked “How are you doing?” and you, in spite of the pain, said, “I’m fine,”knowing full well you weren’t?
It is true that when someone asks us how we are, we tend to respond with “I’m fine.” And the truth is that we are more often than not… NOT FINE when we say it.
Usually, the response “I’m fine” is an attempt to hide. Of course, the answer you give depends largely on who is asking. For example, the cashier at the grocery store doesn’t need to hear the truth, but those close to you probably do.
My purpose in mentioning this today is to get you to think about how you respond to those close to you when you are troubled or in pain. Do you open up and give honest answers, or do you close down and brush them off with an “I’m fine” response?
If you want to strengthen your relationships, become a better communicator and bring those significant others in your life closer to you, be honest the next time they ask you how you’re doing. With that said, let me ask you: How are you today? Go find someone you trust and tell then how you really feel, it's good for your soul.
