We all have the answer to the question “How are you?”, and that’s usually, “Okay.” or “Fine.”

We say those little four letter words, even when we aren’t.

I don’t understand, yet I do. We can’t really tell people how we are. We’d overwhelm them.

But lying every time you are asked that question? Is it necessary?

Why can’t we just tell people how we feel, you know the old saying “Say what you mean, and mean what you say”.

But I guess “Okay” is suitable enough for some people, because we are all hurting in some  way. It’s like an unspoken agreement.  I’m just trying to figure out everyone’s definition of okay.

So if you would, define okay.
