Let’s face it: Life can be stressful. We all have tough days, and sometimes they become tough weeks, months or even years.

Yet when it comes to being honest about how we’re feeling, we often shrug off inquiries with a quick “I’m fine,” “all right” or “OK.”

If we answered more honestly — admitting we’re overtired, struggling to balance it all or simply not feeling our best — could we help others do the same? Could we make talking about and finding support for mental health easier?
