it's okay not to be okay

It’s okay to have a bad day.

It’s okay to sit in the shower crying.

It’s okay to feel fat when you look in the mirror.

It’s okay to not always love yourself.

It’s okay to be triggered by the weight loss commercial on TV.

It’s okay to spend your Friday night alone listening to sad Adele songs on repeat in bed.

It’s okay to eat your feelings in a pint of Ben and Jerry’s.

It’s okay to feel like no one cares.

It’s okay to wonder how hurting yourself might make you feel the tiniest bit better.

It’s okay not to be okay.

We all have those days, those weeks, hey sometimes even those months. And it’s okay to feel those bad feelings and to not always be strong. Vulnerability and sadness are all part of the process. It's okay.

Just remember brighter days are somewhere in the future even if you can’t see them right now. 

Pick yourself up when you’re ready.

Love yourself when you’re ready.

There is always someone out there who wants to love you, who wants you to be okay, who wants to know you.

They’ll be there when you’re ready. <3
