DO YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO FEEL HAPPY? Let’s talk about it.
Everyone reminds each other that it’s okay not to be okay, what people forget to remind each other (and themselves) is that it’s OKAY to be OKAY!
After spending so long in a state of depression or any other negative feeling, it can be terrifying to then start to allow happiness to flow through your body.. I’m here to remind you that feeling that is normal, being scared of recovery is normal, being scared of allowing yourself to feel happy is normal, but you have to first go through this discomfort to reach a point where you’re able to allow yourself to be happy..
The next time you feel happy or positive about something, allow it. Let your body, mind, heart and soul feel it and enjoy it. Don’t start thinking ‘oh fuck, I feel fine now but I’ll feel shit again in 2 minutes.’ Who cares how you’re going to feel in 2 minutes!? We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. .
Live in the moment, embrace the good and the bad, become familiar with feeling okay just like you so easily became familiar with being sad.. Change is uncomfortable, but not forever. Stick it out, strive to be well, just because you have a good day, that DOES NOT invalidate that you still struggle with bad days. Show the world that recovery is possible, but first.. Show yourself.
Find something to be happy about today, no matter how small or how little amount of time it kept you happy, find it, post it, tag me and let’s start making changes to becoming the healthy, happy and best version of ourselves! .
It’s okay to not be okay, it’s also SOOOOO okay to be okay!! Keep slaying, bishes
