Don’t ask ‘How are you?’

The other day I was watching a TV show (Pretty Little Liars – to be exact) and something said in the show really struck with me. It was about when we meet and greet someone, we generally ask ‘how are you’, but do we really want to know how are they doing? Or we want them to say what we want to hear.. which is ‘I am fine/great/doing well blah.. blah.. Do we really care if they are fine? They might be stressed, sad, searching for a job, or struggling to meet daily means, unhappy or worse depressed – but do we really want to listen to that level of an honest answer? Well, I don’t think we do want to listen to all that personal life crisis (and trust me we all are going through one or the other kind)… nobody’s life is perfect. Then what is the meaning of asking such a baseless question! From now on, I will switch to ‘How has your day/morning been so far?’ This will make others think and (perhaps) give an honest answer..!! 🙂

I wore this top in summers, and plan to rock it in Fall too. This color is so dynamic..! Well, these pictures were not taken very recently as you can see (I got my hair cut shorter after these were taken plus we don’t have skirt-worthy weather anymore). 😦

  1. I agree! I hate meeting random colleagues in the coffee area and being asked ‘How are you?’ from them. Really, neither of us care. So why bother?

    Love your look.
