I think what stops them from reassuring with the answer is the pressure of how they gonna respond to it or maybe it actually doesn’t matter to anyone because everyone is already carrying such lies in abundance within themselves so each one of us aren’t even expecting the truth also when we ask someone. Let’s try to find what could be the real us behind this phrase which we regularly use in our life i.e. I am fine: so if we could have answered honestly that fine person might be lonely, unhappy, depressed, unloved, lost, heartbroken, scared, hopeless, frustrated, rejected, hurt, betrayed, trapped, defeated, devastated and many undefined feelings.
So are you one of them who hides behind this phrase often. You are! right! Then I must remind you, you’re not alone in this list my dear reader we all are equally part of this and this is how this human cycle works. Nobody is here to listen to you without taking anything out of you. If you try to count your feelings before people they will start bargaining with your feelings and in return of responding to it they will expect from you to favour them in any way you can. You will feel an extra burden on yourself by taking out their responses on your feelings. Try feeling it by taking a pause, you will discover the burden you’re unknowingly going through because of sharing your things to people. This is the fact we all realise at some point of our life and from then we start hiding our truths and we choose to keep that to ourselves.
So here is a small poem which summarizes it all in one:
Forget about people and
make yourself your listener
No one is here to listen to you
make yourself nearer to you
Excuses you’re making to hide the reality
enough you did now accept the tragedy
I am fine is for people but
not fine are we in real
Why Is it necessary to expect
Incompleteness is the thing
which drives us further
Now say I am fine with
no baggage behind
Make it as normal as else
stop roaming clueless.
