I was just wondering how many times I have said something that I didn’t really mean, and I realized that it’s most of the time. All day long we sensor our world to fit the situation we are in. It might be because we want to be considerate of others, or we are hiding our own fears and worries or probably because you know the conversation is just for the sake of it.
Someone said this “if I see you on the street and I ask how you are, don’t start telling me your life history, I really don’t want to know. Just say I am fine and move on”. I can say this is what 90% of us do when asked a question, we just give the response that is expected to be heard and not the truth (…..so is it considered a lie?), we live among people that are going through so much ordeal in their lives and we don’t even know because everyone has adapted to the “I’m fine” face mask.
How do we really feel? What do we really want to say? Why does the society expect us to keep smiling even when we are going through so much? So many questions, only if there was someone to answer.
words have power in them, remember that
