This question has been playing at the tip of my tongue, ringing in my ears and echoing around the inner walls of my head, ever since I heard it being asked in a Ted talk about a year ago. I’ve been looking for answers ever since.
It’s easy to pretend that everything is going fine; to add filters to our words like we add filters to our photos. “I’m fine” … “It’s going well”… Insert forced smile.
But every once in a while, things aren’t going to be fine and you’re going to want to either hide it or hide in your own shell. Because who wants to be around a person who isn’t doing great, right?
