We have spent the past few days, painting, cleaning and organising all in preparation for the new office. As I sat on the floor feeling proud I realised how grateful I was for those who were so willing to help.
Sadly we don’t all have ‘people’ and I wonder what happens when you have nobody to turn to? Is this why as a society we are quick to reply with ‘fine’ when asked how we are? Mental health shouldn’t be taboo and a fly away comment such as ‘how are you?’ should give us the opportunity to reach out when we need.
The next time you are asked, how are you, or you ask the question, take a longer look at the person in front of you. Are they really fine?
