It’s okay, if you aren’t

“I want you to know that it is okay to not be okay.” [….click to read the full post]

I want you to know that it is okay to not be okay.

It is okay to hold on to hope
or have no hope at all.

It is okay to want to run away from everything
or just want to lie in bed and not move at all.

It is okay to not forget your pain
or just block away the memories that hurt too much.

It is okay to forgive or not forgive at all.
It is okay to feel too much or not feel anything at all.

I want to tell you that it is okay,
as long as you are alive and breathing,
even when you just want to get off this world.
It is okay.

My darling, it is okay to not be okay.

Take all the time you want.
Take everything you need.

Just keep swimming,
Even on days you want to drown.
XOXO
