Fine

My default response to the, “how are you?” question is: “fine.”

“Fine” is a Costume I wear for most people, and it becomes heavier and more exhausting over time.

Sometimes I wear it when it’s totally inappropriate, like when I’m with providers, or with the people closest to me.

I work hard at not wearing this mask, but often it becomes a full suit of armor, protecting me from even my own emotions.

Inspired by the Daily Prompt: Costume
