How are you? - Anichebe

The default response is "Fine", or maybe "We thank God". But that's most of you would say and its all I really want to hear most of the time.

So due to force of habit we just say "Fine" although we don't mean it. Even though we're hurting, and our leg is hanging from a cast, or our heart has just been broken. We just say "fine" and spare others the emotional hand-rinsing that comes from sharing our innermost concerns, worries, fears and emotions.

So we're surrounded by many acquaintances and few friends. By strangers and no neighbours. Our relationships are like costume jewellery, on the surface it may look golden but it soon reveals nothing but base metal when subjected to stress.

The best relationships are transformational in nature not merely transactional. In selecting friends, less is always more.

Just think about it. So how are you?
