How do you answer the question, “How are you?” Tonight I realized that I’ve been saying I don’t know what to say but the truth is, I don’t know what to say that is socially acceptable. I want to say, “shitty! Sad! Angry! Not okay.” But I’m supposed to be fine and take care of those around me and not have needs. So I just get quiet and say “I don’t know.” Which I realize now is a lie.
