accepting your emotions and mental state is the first step to feeling better but it's hard. sure, it may not be permanent. the bad times will always come no matter what. the best you can do is try to be prepared for them. but the bad times will still hurt when they come and sometimes there's nothing you can do about it.
learning that it's okay to be not okay is difficult. acknowledging your pain, your hurt is hard. picking yourself up, dusting yourself off, and marching forth into the unknown is frightening, painfully so. and yet at some point we need to do just that. no matter how scary it is.
i am still in the pain stage in this whirlpool of chaos that we call life but i'm figuring it out. slowly, but figuring it out. i will be fine. i will be happy. i will be okay. but right now, i am not. and that's not a bad thing.
