The Japanese phrase “daijobu desu ka” is a very commonly used phrase meaning “are you alright?” or “are you okay?” It is used to express concern and is a way of showing care for someone who may be feeling overwhelmed or stressed. This phrase is especially useful in mental health contexts, as it can be used to check in on someone who may be struggling emotionally. By asking someone if they are “daijobu”, we are showing them that we are there for them and that we care. Furthermore, it is important to note that there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question—everyone’s response will be different, based on their own individual experiences and feelings.
