Day 5: It’s Okay To Not Be Okay Pt 2

self-love

Last year I wrote “it’s okay to not be okay” because I had forgotten that it was.

When you’re always the “strong” person, the person everyone looks to and rely on, we often forget to let ourselves process whatever struggles we’re going through.

Think positive! Be positive!

People often think positive affirmations is what’s needed when you’re going through a hard time.

But self-love is more than positive affirmations. It’s about reflection, rebuilding and balance.

Of course it’s okay to not be okay. After all we’re humans not robots.

Allow yourself to feel whatever emotions you’re feeling. Don’t bottle it up because the side effect that comes with bottled up emotions aren’t good.

Self-love is learning how to process what you’re going through. It’s about taking the time to fall apart, pick yourself up and finding your center again.

Being strong all the time is unrealistic.

On days you don’t feel okay, take the time to reflect, process and heal.

 

“When you feel sad, it’s okay. It’s not the end of the world. Everyone has those days when you doubt yourself, and when you feel like everything you do sucks, but then there’s those days when you feel like Superman. It’s just the balance of the world. I just write to feel better.” – Mac Miller

  • I woke up like this. Flawed 😂😂😍😍. This unruly child of mine (my hair) won't let me be great. After I spend over an hour straightening it, it still did what it wanted. Shrink and Poof! Guess I'll be rocking my frohawk for awhile. #thisisme #naturalhair #naturalhairstyles #iwokeuplikethis #someonecomedomyhair #imoverit #mesocute
