YOU DON'T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE OKAY

Hello loves, ❤

Sometimes I am not okay and I used to think it was not okay to be that way.

It’s okay to break down and cry.

It’s okay to admit to yourself and to the world that you’re not okay.

It’s okay to ask for help and to talk about your problems.

It is easy to put up a front telling people around you that you are fine when deep within yourself, you know you are not. It is easy to remain quiet and keep everything to yourself. But that means you’re hurting yourself more and that’s not okay. You’re the only person who actually knows what is going on in your own head and you should not be afraid of your own thoughts or about how you feel.

It’s okay to talk about your problems. It doesn’t make you weak. Yes, it makes you vulnerable, but it will make you stronger.

Sometimes all you would feel is that everything around you is crumbling. It sometimes feels as if you are hit by strong currents or on some days, it feels like you’re being hit by a tsunami. It feels like as if you are drowning. Sometimes it feels like everything around you is happening so fast and you are trying your best not to drown. Sometimes it would feel like your entire vision is clouded by a wrecked storm.

You’re human and it’s important to remember that. It’s important to remember that no matter how strong you are mentally, you’re allowed to have bad days. You’re allowed to cry. But that doesn’t mean you should stay and be stuck in self-pity. Take your time to pick yourself up and glue back the broken pieces. Give yourself some time to heal.

It’s okay to voice out to someone. It’s okay to have days when you are not strong. It’s okay to be not okay.

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❤

  2. I agree, some days we just have a not feeling okay kind of day and that’s okay.
    Consider this, it’s not always warm sunny weather, we get cloudy weather, rainy weather, even intense storms, that’s life. We believe we should only have happy times but it’s not the way life ever is.

  3. YES! I am firm believer that mental health is not taboo. I am honest and upfront about my experiences, and what is going on with me when people ask. It is just as important as our physical health, and sometimes our mind needs to rest, and rest. Just as if you pulled a muscle it would take time to heal and get back to normal. And there is no predetermined amount of time for that healing process. I am really glad I found this blog.

  4. A beautiful reminder. I find the hardest thing to do is to admit I’m not okay. I’m getting better at it, and it is one of mine (and my psychologist’s) top priorities to work on in terms of ongoing self-care. I always get into a session and find I just talk and talk and talk because I’ve been (unconsciously mostly) keeping it all inside.
    I wish it was more common to admit when we’re not okay. If people were more open, it would be easier. Of course it all starts with us. I’ll have to try and remember to be more open, so that my loved ones can be open in return 🙂

  5. I love this! For some reason people like to tell others to not cry and show weakness and that can be damaging because sometimes it is for the best to let all of your emotions out before you inevitably snap under pressure. As always, you post something that is so coincidentally in tune to what I need to hear.

    Also, I nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award! Check it out, love. https://kelseyandlife.wordpress.com/2018/06/20/whats-my-future-the-sunshine-blogger-award/

  6. Always reach out to someone before you find yourself in a position where you may contemplate other more harmful things – such as suicide. These things in my opinion are avoidable if the person suffering would just speak up. It’s so incredibly saddening how the people in the limelight have sought no help strong enough to avoid such horrific endings. The one that has stuck out to me since it occurred has been Robin Williams. I will forever remember his comedy and my favorite movie of his, Mrs. Doubtfire. But you don’t have to go to the people in the limelight to know people need help, everyday, the average person contemplates suicide. Don’t do it – seek help! It’s ok NOT to be ok! It gets better.
