Its Okay …to NOT be Okay

“Yes, it’s okay to be afraid. It’s okay to hesitate before plunging from your comfort zone.

It’s okay to have scars, pimples, insecurities, moles, cellulite, tremors, debts, redness, regrets, loneliness and uncertainty.

It’s okay to have no idea what you’re doing.

It’s okay to struggle with some things, while enjoying others. It’s okay to find joy in the beauty in life, even after a great loss. It’s okay to change. It’s okay to move on. And it’s okay to fear changing and moving on.

Wherever you are, and whatever you are experiencing, is okay. You didn’t invent the universe and you didn’t invent the human condition.

You don’t need permission to live whatever you’re living, even if it looks and feels different from anyone else’s life around you. And it’s okay to feel like you need that permission anyway.”

I have witnessed as lot of heartbreak as of lately.

I’ve had my own stuff on my mind as well.

As an empath, I naturally absorb many of people’s emotions around me.

After a morning that: involved a flat tire, air machine not working at a gas station, and a meltdown the size of the State of Texas that a few passerby’s witnessed.

Luckily, my other half is calmer than me and more patient in situations like that. He drove me to work and told me it was going to be okay.

It made me think of how many other people I know are openly going through things or are privately going through things.

You know what, its OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY!!!

Take the moment and breathe, go for a walk, admit it OUTLOUD and give the power of the feeling away and credit at the same time.

It’s not okay to stay not being okay…but just for today…do the best you can.
