How are you doing?

“Hi, how are you doing?”

Do you really want to know the answer to that? Fuck, why do people ask that question? You don’t give a shit and you’re just asking because you’re supposed to. I don’t give a shit about how you’re doing either so why are we fucking doing this? Well, let me tell you, since you asked: I’m sick and fucking tired of this shit life on this shit world full of shit people. Maybe I’d have been better off dying in the hospital. Everything is shit and every second of being alive is fucking miserable. I’m a loser and a piece of shit and I woke up screaming today because I just couldn’t fucking deal with it. Everything is going wrong, and I can’t live like this.

“I’m fine, how are you?”

  1. 1) I never ask unless I genuinely want to know. 2) I answer truthfully (so I rarely say “I’m fine” or “good”) though I don’t generally get very specific… I tend to be vague because I assume the person (depending on the person) doesn’t actually care. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Sad days we live in.

  2. Well, people ask me probably 10-15 times a day and if I’m not fine and answer truthfully, they’ll either get mad that I disrupted the flow of the ritual, or press for further info. Then when they get it they don’t understand. Just makes it worse. I only answer truthfully with people I know on a deeper personal level.
