  • Has never happened to me.
  • A few days ago. It was my boyfriend, and we were sad, because we were talking about the baby I lost recently. I can't remember his exact words, but they were pretty close to "Everything will be alright".
  • My boyfriend does it all the time... infact he did it last night!
  • it was last july , and it was lee my recent ex / current bf and we had just discovered that we truely deeply loved each other , the irony of it , is we broke up 4 months later after he when back to wales. after a 6 week long fight .
  • I have no idea. But I wish someone would
  • I really can't remember when the last time someone has done that for me. However, I wish I could experience that now. Being a Bipolar supporter is so tumultuous, that my soul aches with despair.
  • Some months ago when my husband's job announced it was moving, and we decided we didn't want to move. He told me it would be okay - and it was. I don't often need reassurance.
  • What if I said the right things and raised your dreams? What if I did what’s right and held you tight during the night? What if I was more than you anticipated? Worth all the time you waited? What if I?, What if you?, What if we? What if I offered you flowers and thank god for you every hour? What if I burned so bright - could it make everything right? What if you were more than I expected? Worth all the time I waited? What if you, What if I?, What if we? What if it all happened just as it must and in each other we learned to trust? What if we so beautiful and truthful that we defined our lives with passion and lust? What if it were more than we could have portended? Worth all the time we waited? What if we! What if?

  • I heard this phrase several times after my marital separation. It didn't help at all. It sounded ignorant. I didn't and don't believe it. BUT, it is probably very true, philosophically speaking. BTW-This phrase originates with people who feel like they "have to say something" and wish to be comforting. I appreciate their motives, philosophically speaking.
  • It was my son about a month ago. I don't know what I'd do without my son and daughter-in-law,the reason? Lets just say medical!!!!
  • I can't remember. Being the caretaker seems to be my role in life and no one feels the need to respond in kind. But I could sure use the reassurance and sometimes all I want is to curl up against someone who cares and let them watch my back so I can stop being on guard for just a little while.
  • My boyfriend (just friend at the time) in February after I told him my brother had passed away.
  • No doubt in my mind it was Jimmy, probably with some PMS issue.
  • I had just come back from Iraq and suddenly started all-out sobbing about some of my friends who'd died there. My friend, Rick, was doing everything he could to help, but he started crying, too, because there was nothing he could do.
  • That would be last week My sweethearts twin sister was the one and it was because someone scrawled some not so nice grafitti over the picture of my sweetheart that is etched on her headstone.
    • Linda Joy
      What is wrong with people?
  • About either mid january or late february. I figured out SRS didnt or couldnt afford to help me and my brother out to switch house and in a more stable home. I broke down and my now fiancee (bf at time) just held me and let me cry.
  • Very good, if feminine oriented, question. My mother said it when I skinned my knee, about xxx years ago. And I have comforted women with that phrase on several occasions.
  • It was a few days back. When my Pastor held me and said do not worry everything will be alright. Me and and my wife had an argument and it was creating lot of problems. So we met the Pastor at his home and after he counselled us things are fine now. Thanks to my Lord and the Pastors who prayed for us!
  • A long time ago when I was about 4. It was my Mom. I don't remember why. :( Edit; As of recently, (10/07) both my Mom and my Husband have said this to me.
  • Last month, after I had a falling out with my best friend.
  • The last person that hugged me was 2 years ago when I was admitted to the mental hospital for the 3rd time and that was my mom. Where was your wife you may ask? Well she could not handle it and I was divorced a year later. That hug I got from my mom and dad felt so good that day when I found out she quit on me.
  • Just last night, thank goodness! My lady and sweetheart does this often. And she is always right: It is always "all right". Is she clairvoyant? (smile)

  • Wow I just realized....I don't think anyone ever did that to me. Nope can not remember one time that happened.
  • Not too long ago, I had a really bad day, and by the time my husband came home from work I was a mess.
  • My son.... last night for personal reasons.
  • just lastnight. it was my bf. my family is tellin me that i cant talk to him no more cause im 15 and he is 18. but i will be 16 in march.
  • The last time that I was held tight,and told that was last week. Robert had held me why i cried over the failure that I had thought that I was due to my child failing school. Its good to have someone to share that with.
  • Last Tuesday. My boyfriend has been away a lot recently, and last Tuesday was the last night he would be in town for a week. I was feeling a little down anyway, and got all pathetic and weepy when I thought of another week without him around. He then comforted me and I remembered that it's only temporary, and he will be back.
  • Last time I held my GF and said that was right before she had to get on the plane to not see me for another year =/
  • the last person to tell me that was my boyfreind. he really understands me and appreciates me for who i am. he is also very supporting and i am grateful to have met him and have him in my life.
  • My son. When my daughter and I got into an heated arguement, and she said some hurtful words to me and he heard them. He hates to see me cry or be sad, so he grabbed me and held me, and told me it was going to be all right, and that he would never say anything like that to me.
  • Never.
  • shit if i know...i mean i've been held tight (this morning) and I'm sure someone has told me its going to be alright like....my parents and stuff...
  • My boyfriend when he came up from Atl to see me for my b-day last week ..... i was stressing out about my job but he was here to hold me and he told me everything will be fine and not to stress it so much :)
  • my sister, at the time we had no money at all no food in the house, my grandmother just passed away, me, my mom, brother, 2 sisters and their children were living at my house & my aunt went to jail & her five kids were supposed to come live with us. everything just seemed like it was going to get worse & worse. but everything's better now[:
  • my ex, and it was a few nights ago, about us working things out but now we are fighting again so who knows
  • my boyfriend, lately i've been going through hell, my dad moved out of my house,tthey are planning on getting divorced and i haven't got my period. :( but those words always make me feel a little better
  • it was my boyfriend were not goin to eachother very much this month and ho told me that everything will be ok .
  • I cant really remember, but what i can remember is wanting my now ex boyfriend (long distance relationship) to say those exact words when things got rough and the distance seemed to cloud our relationship. I never did get to hear the words come out of his mouth, although they seem to comfort me everytime i think them.
  • I dont think iv ever had someone say that to me
  • I don't think that is the best thing to say to someone when they are going through some tough times. You will never know exactly how that person feels, I mean they can tell you, but unless you experienced it personally, you will never know. You may have had a similar situation, but I can almost guarantee you that it is not the exact same situation. I know when someone says this, they mean well and are just not sure what to say. So, to answer your question...I believe the last time someone held me and said "everything is going to be all right" was when my good friend and coworker was killed in a car accident on June 5, 2008. I was wondering the streets, just thinking about things and my friend Greg came and picked me up and we talked and he gave me a tight hug and told me that "everything would be all right."
  • Friday night...I was very upset about some bad news I received and he was there for me. I am starting to realize that he is always there whenever I need a strong shoulder to cry on or a strong friend to lean on. :D
  • My husband did that just yesterday. I have not been well and he told me that.
  • It was my boyfriends about 5 days ago. I was really stressed out because of family problems, school, and work.
  • I don't remember... Or maybe it never happened before. I think I really need that right now, though. :) And there's this preferred person who probably will not do that. :)
  • err back in 1991 after my car accident, my parents were at my bedside. other than that never
  • it was my best friend from college. she drove an hour to come see me to tell me everything was going to be fine because my boyfriend who i gave all of myself to broke up with me. and she wanted to be there for me. :)
  • A week or so ago I guess. And it was my girlfriend. And I can't remember exactly why I was being down and sad. +5
  • I don't remember anyone doing that.
  • My senior Drill Instructor. I was having a long stressful day. Then again, I think all he did was slap me upside the head and told me to "Suck it the fuck up."
  • cant rennennber, people just dont seenn to do that with nne
