It is okay to not be okay

During this pandemic I have had to really sit with myself. I can’t distract myself with going out to happy hour, going to the stores and shopping or booking a ticket and traveling. I have had to sit with being uncomfortable, lonely, sad and with my insecurities. It hasn’t been fun feeling these feelings and having to stay in the house. I have seen so many engagements, baby showers, weddings and home purchases. I have realized I can be happy for people and also be frustrated with where I am in life. I know we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others but we can’t just close our eyes to others accomplishments. Comparing ourselves is so normal and I know why we shouldn’t do it. I know I can focus on what I do have and I can also reflect on what I don’t. I am human. I can feel multiple things at once. I don’t know who needs to read this but you are not alone. Give yourself permission to feel your feelings. It is okay to not be okay.

  1. I. Felt. This. This time of year has historically been difficult for me in a number of ways (lot of the things you mentioned above). It’s hard being happy for folk sometimes. Now, add COVID to the mix?! Yikes! Thank you for being vulnerable.
