RUOK? 💛 I'm not coping 💛
Three words. They were hard to say. Many didn't hear. RUOK isn't about the question, it's listening to the response.
ACTUAL RESPONSES to these three words?
🖤 "You're ok!"
🖤 "Yeah but are you coming to my birthday?"
🖤 "It can't be that bad"
🖤 "Why are you being so negative?"
🖤 "You look fine!"
🖤 "It's all in your head ... don't worry about it"
Thankyou to the special few who heard the silent screams for help. Thankyou for listening that day and everyday.
