In french, when two persons greet each other, they usually say "ça va ?", which roughtly means "are you ok ?".
I hate this.
It's binary. Either you're perfectly OK in all your life, either you're not.
And if you dare to say you're not ok… Usually the talk ends abruptly, because the other person was not asking you if you were ok (yeah kind of paradoxal, ain't it ?) but was just saying hello.
When I ask someone if they are ok, I *mean* it.
"ça va" is shit. "comment te sens-tu" is way better. ("are you ok" vs "how do you feel").
Because I try to convey the fact that I *do* care and I *want* to know. To interact.
Please take care of each other.
