Counseling and Psychiatry in Atlanta, GA (Smyrna)—Mental Health Services
“How are you doing?” “Oh, I’m just fine.” “I’m good.” “I’m doing alright.” We ask several people a day how they’re doing and answer this question in return but rarely do we answer it honestly. If we did answer honestly, our responses would probably look something like this:
- “I’m struggling today. I had a bad start thanks to traffic, spilled coffee, and a screaming toddler!”
- “I’m feeling a little sad. I got into a pretty bad fight with my girlfriend earlier today.”
- “I’ve had better days. Work is so busy and the stress is really starting to get to me.”
- “I’m doing my best to keep it together, but I’m feeling sad a lot lately.”
We’ve learned to give a straightforward, simple response instead, as not to extend the conversation about how we’re really feeling. Which is okay—if you don’t want to talk to your coworkers, your friends, or others about how you’re feeling, you certainly don’t have to. However, it is important that you pay attention to your actual feelings and when you aren’t feeling fine, good, or alright, you get to the bottom of it. This is what matters: how we respond to and manage our obstacles.
“Counseling has to do with intuition, with work on oneself, with the quietness of one’s mind and the openness of one’s heart.” –Ram Dass
