How Are You Doing?

I sometimes forget when your therapist asks this question you can tell the truth.

But still my first reaction is to say, "Fine, great, okay, everything is perfect, no complaints."

Then I'm like, "Wait. Actually, I'm not fine. I mean, I'm fine in the overall scale of things, but I'm not happy. I mean, I'm happy overall, I mean pretty happy, I'm just feeling not pleased at all with this one situation. Or more than one situation. Multiple situations and things I am not pleased with."

And that's why therapists get paid a lot of money.
