The average person tells 4 lies a day, 1460 lies a year; a total of 87,600 lies by the age of 60. And the most common lie is, “I’m fine”.

Is it because we all secretly know how fucked up the world is and that people who are truly coping are the ones who are winning and we all just want to be perceived as being one of the winners? Because if you’re not fine, then what are you?
