Thread OP

how are you today?

comparisons and points of view
as i have been under the weather for quite some time, i have been trying to stay in good mood no matter what, as it helps (sometimes a lot).
for all that i have learned, it is crucial the way you see a situation in perspective.
i want to bring 2 examples: 1 fellow that has been beaten up gets into a place where is greeted by another and asks him "how are you today?" and he says "i have seen better days'". this way he is not complaining about how bad he is now.
another in similar situation answered: "am doing the best i can". again, does not tell how bad he feels, and with a positive mind.
but when no matter what, things are still deep under, then could be seen like in this example:
a child that is slowly recovering from a painful situation is still feeling bad, and is asked if he is feeling better and he answers: "no am not; am less worse"
so there you are. it all depends of the perspective.
