This question is often asked by people as a way to make conversation and small talk, but most people who ask it, really don’t care about your answer.
Also, answering it can be complicated sometimes. You might be struggling really bad but you don’t really feel comfortable telling people that, or certain people who ask. You’re stuck between answering honestly or sugar coating the truth to protect them from the truth or boring them with it. Or even if you’re doing really well, there’s often so much that goes into it that it isn’t a quick answer if they want details and there isn’t time to get into them. 🤷♀️
