Not Fine

This is just one of those posts
where I want to share some kind words
in case you need them.

Telling someone "I'm fine" isn't helpful.
"I'm fine" doesn't start a dialog.
It doesn't begin the process of healing.

Whether it's your doctor
or a coach
or a loved one,
answering "I'm fine"
when you AREN'T fine
leaves the door closed.

More often than not,
if you are close to someone
or they are your professional support,

they want to know what's not fine.

They can't help "fine."
There's no coaching for "fine."
There's no correcting for "fine."

Just remember you can be not-fine.

And you can say that out loud.

We will listen.
