Dear friends and other interesting creatures,
People prefer when they ask “How are you?” in passing to hear a frivolous “Fine!”, because they were not really interested in your response in the first place. If you can throw in a fake smile, all the better.
Don’t waste your truth on such individuals whose eyes are already scanning the room while waiting for “Fine” to escape your lips only so their insincere selves can move on.
One soon learns who actually cares about your response. It is usually the same people cheering when you achieve.
I wish you enough,
