WHY IS OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY

10 February 2015

A year ago, I went through a heartbreak and trust me when I say that I went on full mental and emotional breakdown for just a bit over six to eight months. I regained my strength and heart to face a new challenge to move to the UK for university. And now? I'm happy. Why am I telling you this? Because I want you to know it's okay to not be okay.

Here's why: I know that many people are always trying to put up with a happy front when deep down they're unhappy about something they didn't think that anyone would bother or be there to listen. But that's not true.

It's okay to not be okay.

It's okay to break down. I know, I've been through that. Too many times that I find it scary, actually. But eventually, breaking down is better than to keep it all in your heart and not let it out. And you'll compile all these emotional problems until one day, you explode - and that's not healthy. So why not just let it all out? Whether it's just yourself, or in front of a close friend or family member(s), I think it's a better way.

There are so many people who just want to be there for you. All you need to do is to know who these people are. They want to be there for you, to share your happiness with, or sadness, anything. They don't necessarily mean like a romantically partner (it's good if one of them is), but your family and closest friends? Yeah, these people are the ones you could reach out to.

We're just humans.  It needs letting go. We're all just humans, we can't take up too many masks and seem to be strong. You don't have to always seem strong to show people that you're too weak to break down. Ever heard of "the ones who seem strong are always the weakest"? Yep. It's okay to be yourself - you're stronger than you are when you've decided to show the people you care most (or care for you most) that you can be weak too.

It's a short one, but you know what I mean. I don't want anyone (including myself) to be strong all the time and then hurt themselves even more by not letting it out, by acting that it's okay.
