“How are you?” Ugh this question makes me cringe. My answer to this is usually “fine.” And not because I am. I am most certainly not fine right now. As an evaluator, I am a professional question asker. And yet personally, the hardest question for me has been to depend on others and ask for help. To show up as fully human in all spaces and let others know my experience.
