“Hi, Carol! How are you doing?”
“I’m doing great, Kim! How are you?”
“Oh, I’m fine.”
How many times do we just say that we’re “fine”? A lot of the time, it’s easier just to pretend like everything’s fine than to open up and tell others how our lives are really going. And, a lot of times, when we ask others how they’re doing, we don’t really mean it. We need to show others that they matter to use, and that we want to be there to encourage them.
Challenge: Ask someone how they’re really doing.
