It's Okay to Not be Okay Sometimes

So I started writing my Takes end of December and I´m having a lot of fun with this and also already have ideas for a few more, but I`m right now not able to write them.

I`m right now kind of lost. I was so happy for this year to start, wishing so badly that this year will be going good, because 2017 was awful for me, but until now this year is mostly shitty so yeah...

Also right now I`m a person who needs a lot of affection from my surrounding and positive vibes.

I`m clingy right now, I want to have my friends and my siblings around a lot. So I hang out with them as often as possible.

Life isn`t always good and definitely not perfect. It`s fine to be not okay sometimes. It`s part of life. Have a day.

It`s important to accept it instead of fighting against it. I was talking about one thing with a friend of mine and I told her I try to get rid of this feeling and she told me to not do that.

She told me for example if she is feeling nervous she doesn`t try to get rid of this negative feeling, she tries to accept it.

She said she tells her nervousness to come in and that she knows it is there and that it is okay, because it will go away again and until that, the depressing feelings should make them self comfortable, while she will still do her thing, that benefits her and her health.

She said it`s a part of her and it`s sometimes fine to not feel okay all the time.

Still keep doing your thing. Keep working on your Goals. Don`t be defeated

You shouldn`t just stay in bed and sleep all the time!

Still take a shower, dress yourself and go out with friends and have a good time. Do things that will be good for you.

Moreover eat something! I always used to be someone who doesn’t eat anymore if I feel not okay, but that’s wrong.

It`s important that you still take care of yourself. You don`t have to smile away that you are not feeling okay..Accept it but don`t give up on yourself!

To add what helps me, is to point out the the positive stuff. I might feel shitty right now, but at least I`m here and doing this Take instead of lying in bed doing nothing.

Also I did eat something and I did not try to “help” myself by drinking alcohol, only water and tea.

I also did worked out this morning, even if I haven’t done my whole workout, I did nearly the half of it. This was a little forced, but I did and still do feel better after the workout. I also asked a friend to take me to the gym with her next week.


I might have done this more for myself as a reminder, then for you guys so sorry not sorry

  • Yep, it is. But like I was told a long time ago, when you're going through some shit, KEEP GOING! Don't just stand there in the shit. If you try to make positive choices, take action in your life to create positive change, it'll help a lot when tromping through the doo doo of life.

    Good myTake. Tough times never last, but tough people do.

  • Very nice. :)

  • Hang in there, things will get better. Life shifts up and down.

  • I can relate to this so much.

    This is definitely some advice i want to give my kids someday.

  • Seems like it hit you hard that this year started bad. Set your expectations a little low and then watch how everything turns out the way you want it to be


What Girls Said 2

  • I've had bad days.

  • What if i am not okay all the time...

    • Then probably think about getting professional help. It`s also okay, but you should help yourself. One close friend of mine is also thinking this way and for her it helps. Maybe try it out
