“How Are You?”
Those Three Little Words

Three little words (TLW). A simple phrase that comes out of people’s mouths as easily and unconsciously as an exhale.  

When said to a griever, it takes their breath away for a moment as they are hit with the realization again. The realization of the death of their loved one just when they were attempting to stay away from the feelings for a while. So there is a hesitation to calculate how they feel … or to figure out what to say to a phrase that has no easy answer right now. A mixture of emotions and thoughts flood their mind and body like an ocean wave.

How am I? I don’t know.
