Over the last few days I’ve been not feeling myself, i just have no energy for anything. Not going into too much detail, i have basically felt like shit. Excuse my language but that is purely the best description. There’s no beating around the bush. But that made me think, why do we pressure ourselves to act like everything is okay when things are blatantly not okay? We pretend things are hunky dory to please other people which makes us feel ten times worse. It is a massive weight to hold on our shoulders, why not let it out rather then saying i’m okay to please someone else.
The purpose of this post isn’t to make you bear your soul to the world (unless that’s what you want to do) but to let you know that it is okay to not be okay. Don’t feel like you are letting anyone or yourself down. Everyone has their low points but they make us appreciate the high ones. There is no point feeling guilty or blaming yourself, you are only human. I want to break the stigma that it’s not okay to have down days. Because it is, it happens to the majority of us.
Because as much as i want everything to be okay, i can’t just pretend it is. I know things will get better in a week or two. The storm will pass and life will go back to usual, this blip will soon fade like every other time. Yes i’m in a low patch but everyone has them, don’t lose hope, girl stay in your jammies all day, eat that tub of ice cream. Have a long bath, just do whatever it is you do to relax. Self love is so so important. The most beneficial thing you can do is look after yourself.
So next time you’re a little low and scared to let people know how you feel, just remember it’s alright. Obviously it’s not good but it doesn’t make you a weaker person because of it. Even the strongest of people have their off days. It doesn’t define you, keep going. I’m hoping this post has given you a little positivity. Even if it’s only the slightest bit.
Remember everyone is fighting their own battle.
