• Stop Asking

    Dear people of the world,

    My life seems to be falling apart and all you can think is to ask me meaningless questions such as “how are you?” or “how are things going?” or “how is/was your day?”. Here is the deal, I am hating life right now and don’t need you asking me 24/7 how I am doing/feeling/how my day was because a) my answer will most likely be that I am terrible and my day was terrible b) I can kind of pretend that it was not that bad until you ask me and c) if you really cared then you would know how I am doing by the look on my face and would not even ask the question in the first place. I really think that it is moronic that people ask that question hoping that the other person will merely respond with the typical “good. you?”. If you have not figured it out already, most people are lying when they say good sometimes for no reason besides the fact that we are programmed to say that in return. Next time someone asks you that tell them the truth, don’t lie. You will find out who cares about your answer based on whether or not they stay to listen. My point is stop asking people how they are unless you actually care and are prepared to get a long winded answer in response with the addition of some tears. Try out something new today. Say hello, compliment them, or ask them a legitimate question.

    Thanks for reading,
