It’s Okay To Not Be Okay!

With everything going on in our world right now it’s so easy to feel the uncertainty all around us. We try to get through the day and hope for a better tomorrow, and we do it all again the next day, until we feel ourselves start breaking down and giving up. I’m here to let you know that whatever you’re feeling is okay. We all feel in different ways when it comes to stressful situation, especially situations like now. We try our best by staying home and doing what is asked from us by our local and federal government but we still feel anxious, lonely, scared, frustrated, and so much more.

Recently I came across an Instagram post from one of my favorite people Jaina Lee Ortiz, She wrote

“This is what I call REAL. I’m here to say it’s okay to not be okay. It’s okay to feel what you feel, it’s ok to take an unfiltered picture, it’s ok to feel uninspired and lost and sad and confused. But also remember, you’re not alone. Your struggles don’t define you. You are enough, you are worthy, you are beautiful, you are brave. Let’s not compete or compare. Screw the beauty standards. Post an unfiltered picture. Make a silly face. Emotionally clean your spirit with a good cry. Speak passionately about what you believe in. Be authentically you. And don’t be afraid to show it. 💜 -j”

This post really brought into light that it’s okay to not be okay. We’re aloud to cry and just let everything that we’ve been feeling out. Having a good cry is actually good for you.

I just hope that in the end we can take whatever life lessons that we’ve been given by enduring this pandemic we can use it to make our world a better place.

Just remember you are not alone, we are going to get through this, I love you and you are loved!
