It is okay. Honestly. I have some difficulty coming to terms with these few words, and many a time I have actually broken down because I used to feel like there was something wrong with me if I wasn’t happy around people and that I always had to be happy all the time. There isn’t a need constantly to put on this mask for the world, it might seem easier to just put this mask on and to tell the world where to go but you don’t need to. I am still learning everyday to accept that but if you’re feeling this right now then you need this post.
I feel overwhelmed with emotions, I’m worried, scared, emotional, I’m overthinking everything, I’m confused, lost and I’m at that point where I’m physically and emotionally exhausted from trying to put on this mask everyday and pretend.
I’m not okay, I can finally admit that to myself. But I’m learning that when I admit it to myself I can realise that it won’t be forever. Just because I’m feeling like this right now doesn’t mean that it is forever, life is a roller coaster and right now it is a down moment.
I honestly believe that in society signs of weakness isn’t the to thing you do, I know from previous experience people honestly feel like you should be have this mask of happiness on all the time, you should be happy all of the time, and the mask shouldn’t fall, however that isn’t life. That isn’t how it works.
That mask is allowed to fall, it is okay to cry, show your emotions, show that not everything is okay. Let’s be honest, we all have bad days and sometimes those bad days can be worse than ever, but don’t ever feel like you can’t get through it.
When you have a bad day, there are so many ways that can help to improve your day, even for a little while and sometimes it can be nice to take your mind off things, here is a post of things I do on a bad mental health day!
Never forget what a strong, talented, fantastic, beautiful, loving, kind caring person you are, I find that sometimes when I have a bad day and I am not okay I end up putting myself down. Let’s be honest, you are fantastic and bad days don’t make you a bad person, a person who doesn’t deserve happiness or has done something wrong.
What you’re feeling right now is okay and I promise you, you can get through this.
