I’m okay. I’m okay
We spend our whole lives telling everyone that we’re okay.
It’s a response that we have been trained to say from the time we were small children.
When we were learning to walk and we would fall, our parents would immediately reassure us. You’re okay. You’re okay.
Over time it became automatic when were were hurt, sad, lonely, heartbroken or sick.
I’m okay. I’m okay.
Ya know what though?
Every now and then it’s okay not to be okay.
Ya know why?
Because one day, it will be okay again.
But right now, in this moment, it is okay to feel the depth of our emotion because when we allow ourselves to truly feel, then, and only then, can we finally heal.
Yeah, I’m okay…
