Oh please. It’s easy to lie about being okay when you’re not. We do that all the time anyway, lie. What gets us tongue-tied, rather, is telling the truth. And so putting into words “I am sad.” is an even braver thing to do. It takes so much pride to admit that we’ve lost our control over ourselves because as many have pointed, happiness is a choice. Geez if only it were that easy.
And it’s not like I am not happy at all. I am. But I’d like to say the most honest feeling:
I am sad.
