How are you?
You ask a friend, a colleague at work, a neighbour every morning when talking, chatting on the phone or when you meet.
It is among the first things one would ask when making a conversation.
Question is do you really want to know? Are you ready for their truth?
Saying I am fine, all is well or am alright is easy for both sides since, no one wants to look like they are complaining or the person asking is not actually asking.
Fine, a four letter word that is often used to cover up how one actually feels
Fine could be,
Fine could be,
Fine can mean I am a dead man walking and I have lost hope in life.
How are you? Like for real HOW ARE YOU? Ask it like you mean it; don’t ask because you are just trying to make a conversation so you ask for that T-shirt you borrowed her/him back or if he/she want to go for drinks later.

Be human and actually ask. Who knows you might end up saving a life; you might help put a smile on one’s face since that one issue that they never thought would have a solution is finally solved.
The friends you talk to everyday, ask them again, take a moment and listen, look at them, see their body language or tone and you will know.
For once pay attention, do it when you can and don’t wait until it’s too late only to end up saying oh! We just talked this morning, she seem fine we even laughed.
What is friendship if you don’t care enough?
What is friendship if you don’t listen, pay attention?
What is friendship if you were not there when you were really needed?
What is friendship???
Me and you, let us all make it our mission to ask like we mean it and be there for our friends or anyone who looks like could use a word of encouragement or a listening and less judgmental person to hear them out or advise them.Be there for our friends or anyone who looks like could use a word of encouragement or a listening and less judgmental person.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” ― Leo Buscaglia
