How you are doing vs how you are REALLY doing.



Staff member
Sometimes when people ask us how we are doing, we embellish the truth. Or even lie.

This thread shows the difference between what you say to friends or family, and the actual truth.

Me first:

“I am fine thank you” vs “My mind is screaming that I am never going to be good enough”

I agree, the first response is either 'I'm fine thanks' or 'Not bad today' - I do it, it's something genetically infused into my (and possibly everyone's) make-up, but in truth I'm in pain, feel knackered and worn out, and generally feel like someone has pulled the plug out on me, but other than that, 'I'm fine thanks'.
