Okay. I'm okay. I'll be okay. Everything is okay. These are answers to the question: How are you? No one ever really knows what "okay" means to the person saying it. Being okay isn't always what we think.
Sometimes okay means mediocre - not good, not bad, but somewhere in between. At other times okay is just a word to say instead of divulging just how bad or down a person may actually feel. You never know how someone may feel or what they may be going through.
Compassion and love are the best remedies you can offer. Never judge. Listen...truly listen. Don't give advice when it isn't really prompted or requested. Stay consistent in who you are to a person - as hard as it may be at times. Just an ear, a shoulder, a smile, a kind word or a caring spirit can help wonders when one is feeling down.
Never underestimate the power of your concern or care for another person.
It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.
