It’s Okay to Not be Okay

A couple of weeks ago my life changed in a big way. Since then, I’m carrying on with life. There’s no big sob fest happening every day. I’m not spending my days listening to Adele and Christina Perri eating cartons of Ben & Jerry’s. But yes, I do have my moments when I feel a bit sad. I’m still going through this process. The process of figuring out my plan of action…the process of figuring out what I am going to do about this, how I am going to deal with it, and how I am going to prevent it from affecting my future.

And that’s okay.

Seriously, it’s okay to not have it all together. It’s okay to not know how to deal with something. It’s okay to want to talk about your feelings.

You don’t have to constantly keep to yourself.  You don’t have to pretend like everything is fine if it isn’t.

You are allowed to be upset.

There’s no set amount of time for when you feel back on track. It’s not based on a timeline of when you might stop thinking about your situation before you fall asleep at night.

I still feel angry. I still feel sad. Some days I feel euphoric. Some days I don’t want to get out of bed…and I’m allowed to feel all of these things.

Stop holding yourself to an impossible standard and realize that emotions are a part of life and the more we try to run away from them the quicker and sneakier they become. They will find you. (creepy)

The sooner you allow yourself to be upset the sooner you will feel better. At least that’s what I’m going with.

Today I’m fine. Tomorrow I might not be…and that’s okay.


I would love your feedback.
