When we first introduce children to questions and how to answer them, one of the first questions is “How are you?”
And an obvious answer that is taught is “I am fine”.
Over the years this becomes so much of a habit, fine, that we forget we can feel otherwise too. We feel lots of things, we do lots of things and hide them up behind a ‘fine’. Why?
Why did anyone not tell the kids how to express themselves? How they should express truth, and let emotions out rather than bolt them up behind the door of “I am fine.”
A person can be so so much more than just fine.
Let us all be that person behind this fine. Let us be us!
