I read online that most people feel awkward about saying “I feel a bit down today” because they don’t want people to think they might have poor mental health.
Reminds me of Mum talking to an old African woman. The woman asked her in Swahili how she was, and Mum started to say “oh, not good! This went wrong, and that went wrong…” and the woman interrupted her and said “no no no, you’re not supposed to say that! You’re supposed to say you feel good today.”
She tells it as an amusing story that showed her ignorance of how she was meant to behave, but I feel like I’m living that life every day.
At the moment (having recovered from my irritation with iMovie) I’m fighting off the effects of plaintive music (Over and Over by Fleetwood Mac). Apart from that, I feel good! How about you?
