I love when people say this to me.
Like, please, tell me about myself. I’ll wait.
You look upset, something is CLEARLY wrong and they look at you and say, “Tired? You’re tired.”
Like, you didn’t even give me a chance to answer. You didn’t even give me a chance to lie to you and say “I’m fine” or “I’m just tired”. At least give me the option of deception.
Also, when you look at someone and they don’t look ‘fine’, they are NEVER fine. It’s always a lie. I don’t really like the words ‘always’ and ‘never’, but I feel like they are very appropriate here.
I feel bad for these people, because they mean well (I’m assuming), but they also don’t want to deal with the truth.
They know that they should ask about you, because you look like shit, but they really don’t want to go into it or somehow get a real response and have to handle that information.
I guess they are just protecting themselves as much as they are themselves. By just stating that you are tired, they are lying to you (which helps no one) and themselves.
No, they aren’t suffering from some invisible mind ghost haunting their every waking thought, they are just tired. That’s it. No reason to dig any further, they must have just not slept enough..though they have been ‘sleeping’ for about a week now, so that’s weird. Maybe they sleep TOO MUCH and that’s why they are tired. I read that somewhere, that too much sleep makes you tired. *feels relief* Ahh, I figured it out.
That’s probably why they cry so much too.
