How Are You?
Such a simple phrase; but it can bear so much weight.
If you answer, honestly, it often scares the one asking the question away.
If you just say, "Fine.", it generally encourages light and airy "surface" conversation; chit-chat, if you will.
I, myself, loathe chit-chat. My preference is real answers to that question.
Now, at times, time constraints interfere; at which point I try to set up another time to have a real conversation.
I've found, that can scare people away, also. Again, a lot of people don't want to have deep, real conversation.
This makes me a little sad; but is something I have to accept.
Just know, that if I ever ask, "How are you?", I really do care how you are, ok?
Have a good day, and be safe... #2021LATE beamererin.com firstname.lastname@example.org #JusTSpInnIngPlaTes #lightattheendofthetunneloflife
