I’m not okay. Today was a crappy day, I felt useless, angry and every other negative emotion you can think of. I even came close to crying. I know right. I mean today’s weather was awesome, the sky was clear and I still felt crappy. Have you ever had one of those days? I know I’m not the only one who has had them and if I hear anyone saying it’s because I’m a girl or it’s related to that time of the month, I swear I’m going to jail for murder. I felt so crappy that I didn’t even feel like blogging but here I am pouring out my worst emotions to you. Have a cup of tea with me as I tell you what happened.
So with my day not going how I wanted, I did what any normal person would do and I went on Facebook. Not to post anything, I just wanted to scroll through my feed and see what people were up to. Worst idea ever. Facebook didn’t help at all. Instead I just saw people having a time of their lives. I was busy sulking and people were living it up. And then it hit me. Have you ever noticed how people on Facebook are always having a time of their lives? People are getting promoted, buying cars, moving to the suburbs, falling in love, getting married and all that is good in the world and yet none of that is happening to me.
I mean, nobody has problems on social media. Everyone is living their best life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not jealous (okay maybe a little bit) but that’s not the point. Ever since social media, we aren’t allowed to feel bad. For instance if you are sad then it means you are depressed, if you get angry then you have anger issues, if you are happy, sad and all over the place then you have some sort of disorder. It’s like you are not allowed to not be okay because… wait, why aren’t you allowed to feel all that again? I mean we are human, things go wrong and they affect us so naturally we will emote negatively.
If a person dies, you should be happy because they lived their best life. If you get stabbed then you should be happy you are still alive. If you get dumped, you should be glad because that person wasn’t right for you. You should be fake just for the sake of society and its expectations. Well you are not a robot, you are human. It’s okay to not be okay. Life happens, it doesn’t give you lemons and you turn them into lemonade. It gives you a rejection letter from university and you become sad. Its life. It won’t always be rosy and perfect. Even those that are always happy on social media have an off day. It happens.
Moral of the post
My cup of tea is almost finished. We won’t always have great days. Sometimes our emotions will get the best of us. That doesn’t mean something is wrong with us medically or mentally. It means we are humans and certain things affect us in a negative way. Life is not easy nor is it one long party. Bad things happen, we stumble and fall. What’s not okay is to go around pretending to be okay and happy when you are miserable and sad. Feel those emotions, go through them and embrace them. It’s okay to not be okay. It’s life and it happens.
Remember, Live, Love, Learn and be Happy.
