I want YOU to know that it’s okay not to be okay all the time. Life is full of ups and downs, good moments and bad, sad times and happy, new experiences and the boring mundane. Not every day will be happy and not every season will be peaceful. You’re going to face hard stuff in this life. And when you do, let yourself feel – remember it’s okay to fall apart and it’s more than alright to not understand what you’re feeling or how to accept things as they are.
Embrace the messy and experience what it really means to know nothing else other than putting one foot in front of the other. Because sometimes, that’s all you can do and that’s okay. I want you to know that it’s okay to have no clue what you’re doing with your life, to be scared of what’s to come (or what isn’t), and to be a little insecure in your ability to “make it happen” – whatever your “it” may be.
It’s normal to feel jealous of “her” and to want things you don’t have. It’s normal to get discouraged and feel ugly sometimes – or a lot of the time. These things are expected. But it’s not okay to let yourself STAY there. It’s not okay to let your mind and those negative thoughts take over – without putting them in their rightful place when you’re done. We need to remember to preach to ourselves – to put a stop to harmful thoughts and shine some light on the lies this world and our own brains tell us each day.
There are only a few things that TRULY matter in this life and I promise you, being not okay is only going to get you closer to figuring it all out. Being not okay is part of life – it’s part of your story. And with the right perspective and hope, those not okay times can be the most beautiful part.
So, let yourself feel the things you feel and don’t be afraid to ask the questions. Learn to put yourself and your need first sometimes.
