Topic: People asking if "I'm okay"
I'm starting to get annoyed with people constantly asking if I'm Okay after all of this.
I know that most of the people are asking because they really care, or because they don't know what else to say. But it's starting to aggravate me because I'm trying to get into my normal life (I like Lainy's "new normal" notion - that's really what it is) and having to keep answer those questions is almost like a step back each time they ask.
I tell everyone I am ok, and getting through it. I don't tell them the whole truth, well, because i know they don't want to know that in reality, im not doing well at all! That doesn't quite make for good conversation.
So why do people insist on bringing it up over and over again when they clearly see that i'm trying to enjoy myself? They know that every time they ask it makes me upset but they keep asking. I even had one person yesterday ask if me and my mom (who was in the room and could have asked herself) were ok, and when i said yes we were doign as best we could, she told me it was going to get harder and worse. Why, thank you, that definitely made me feel better.
Has this happened to anyone else? How do you deal with it and when do people stop asking all of the questions?
I love you, Daddy.
