Things Can Get Tough
Not feeling okay. You’ve had those days before. The ones where you feel down. The days where there are things going on in your life that are tiring you out. They make you feel anxious and stressed. They cause all types of worries and frustration. You try to push those feelings away and try to push in the positive ones. Sometimes it feels like a battle inside. You are just not there no matter how hard you try. Then all that internal fighting gets you down and gets you tired.
I know exactly how you feel. You are not alone. There are others who are feeling this way. We are going through different things but the feelings we experience are the same.
Don’t beat yourself down about it. Don’t feel bad if you can’t get out of that sadness as fast as you would like. All of your feelings are valid. It’s okay that you are not where you want to be. Just don’t give up trying to get out. Sometimes all you need to do is accept that you feel that way. Give yourself that permission. Say to yourself “I know that I am not okay right now. I know that it is not how I want to feel. But I am okay.”
You want to feel good and happy. You want to feel strong and in charge. And in the meantime while you make your way out of the bad feelings to those good feelings, be kind to yourself. Take care of yourself and do something that will make you feel good, even if it’s just a little better.
You’re Not Alone
For me, when I feel down and maybe worn out because of stress, frustration and sometimes fear, I go sit and relax. I get out my journal and I write everything out. In whatever way it comes out. It needs to come out of your body and not get stuck in their and cause harm. I feel that it helps me to let out those feelings. It’s a healthy and helpful way to deal with it. In the past I have held it in and pushed it way down to try to ignore it. They come up and they affect my health, especially my skin and digestive health.
But I have decided and have the tools to deal with them no matter how hard it is. I give myself the permission to work those out. I don’t want them in my thoughts or in my body. Get out! I deserve better! I deserve to be well and healthy and happy!
Not Feeling Okay. That’s Okay.
You deserve that as well. Just take those steps to figuring out what will work for you. Maybe it’s journaling like I do. Or maybe exercising will help. I use affirmations and read super helpful uplifting books as well. Maybe just watching something funny on t.v. or online will make a difference. It all helps, it all adds up. In the end we will be happy and healthy people, for ourselves, for our wonderful families.
You Can Do It and You Deserve It! You Are Okay, even if you are not feeling okay 🙂
