So lately, I ain’t feeling myself.
So to everyone out there, things might seem chaotic. Your job isn’t your favourite, your anxiety is eating you away, your bank account looks scary or they is a lot in your plate.
Or maybe that’s not exactly what’s going. Or you’ve just been dealing with a lot. Everyone has their own struggles, their own issues to work through, and sometimes things don’t turn out the way you want them to.
We deal with a lot in modern society. We have jobs, bills, families, friendships, and relationships, all of which come with their own complexities. Juggling all of these responsibilities takes a lot of physical and emotional energy.
Being vulnerable and admitting that we are not okay when we project every appearance of being the opposite is scary, but as we all know, life isn’t all rainbows and cute baby animals.
It’s okay to be different; it’s okay to feel things. It’s okay to want to cry, to be angry, to feel negative emotions. That was something that I don’t remember hearing much growing up, and because I never heard it, I thought that emotion of any kind was a weakness
Having emotions and feelings doesn’t make you weak. Having emotions and feelings makes you human. It’s okay not to be okay. You may say that you don’t see an end to your pain, but as I discovered, the only way out of your pain is through it.
Yes, it sucks. Yes, it’s painful, but you will come out stronger for having experienced that pain, no matter what you’re dealing with right now.
If you’re going through a hard time, seek out the support of people who love you. Take as much time as you need to feel the emotion and recover. No matter what the external world tells you, you don’t have to be perfect, and it’s okay if you don’t feel okay.
