Not really--thanks for asking

The other day someone asked me if I was okay. I gave the conventional response.

After they walked away, I realized the honest answer is "No. I'm so far from 'Okay' that my emotional gps can't even find 'Okay,' let alone get there."

Of course, that would elicit questions, and I wouldn't be able to articulate the whys, and I'm uncomfortable complaining about it, given what's going on in so many other lives.

But the truth is...not okay. Still, papers have to be graded, puppies fed, kitties scritched. One foot in front of the other. So what if occasionally the steps are uneven, faltering, with the occasional sprain. Just. Keep. Moving.
