If You're Not Okay, It's Okay.

Have you ever felt like nothing was going right for you?

It is okay to not be okay. Life happens, and things get you down, and you feel like the world is against you.


Society makes you feel that you must be happy at all times, and that is not how life works. 


No one can be honestly happy all the time, and that is okay.

One day you feel like life is great, and nothing can stop the high of life you live, and then the next day your world is crumbling down.

Regardless if it's a rough patch, a bad day, or a major setback; it may feel like, it seems like one thing goes wrong after another. And another, and another. Sometimes an unexpected challenge or an obstacle might come your way, and you find yourself stressing out, worrying and not knowing what to do. And, some days, you just have nothing. Zero motivation, no creativity. All of the sudden, you’re being left with self-doubt. You think you have to be strong all the time. You think you’re not allowed to cry, to admit that you’re not okay. But it's okay to admit that you are not okay.

Why?

Why do we always feel the need to be strong? Why do we feel guilty when taking a time-out?


This could also be because people try to put on a mask to cover on how they really feel. It’s as if everyone feels like showing pain is a sign of weakness. I’m here to tell you that it’s okay to not be okay sometimes. It’s okay to admit that you’re hurting, broken or even confused about your current spot in life. It’s okay…


It's okay to dwell in sorrow, but don't stay there. It's okay to not know when you'll be okay again, but do know you'll be okay again.


Amid, Covid-19 life can get hard, and it's okay to be feeling the feels. Take a day, and just be.


Simply be.


Life is hard enough as it is, we shouldn't go through life pretending we are okay when we aren't. Live in the moment. Be okay when you're okay, and not okay when you're not. Life will still be waiting for you on the other side.


You're human. It's life. Of course, you have.


Peace and Love
