When a person looks sad or upset, one of the worst things anyone could do is ask that person if he or she is okay. When people ask the question, “Are you okay?’ at the wrong time or when that person is clearly not okay, it doesn’t help the situation. In fact, it may increase the chances of making his or her day worse. It’s understandable that they are trying to help by being a concerned friend, but if they really cared they would see that the person is obviously not okay and instead try to make the situation better.
