It’s Okay to Not Be Okay

Happy Saturday.

Something that has been weighing heavy on my heart is something I think maybe other people could benefit from right now.

It’s no secret that we are living through history right now. The COVID19 pandemic has affected every single human alive in one way or another.

There have been many good things about this time: ecosystems in nature gaining strength, polluted areas seeing cleaner air, a sense of community with the entire planet, etc.

There has also been many stories shared online of people with anxiety who are handling this time well, because they live with a sense of panic all the time.

I want to check in and make sure you know that if your anxiety is worse right now, or if it has regressed to stages you thought you were not worried about anymore (πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ), or if you have never had anxiety but you’re developing it now, or anything other than being “okay”…that’s okay. It is truly okay to not be okay.

I’m serious…It’s truly okay to not be okay.

As long as you’re safe, let yourself feel anxious. Let yourself feel whatever physical symptoms are being manifested in your body. Allow yourself to feel scared, nervous, angry, tired, whatever it is. This time is unprecedented for anyone alive right now. Acknowledge the difficulty in right now, and use this time of heightened sensitivity to check in to your needs.

Remember, we are literally all in this together. And I am here for you, sending all the good energy your way πŸ’›
