It’s okay not to feel okay. It’s completely okay to feel sad and to express those emotions. Allow yourself the time and space to feel and heal. Don’t let fear or insecurity hold you back. You’re capable of living a fulfilling life, no matter what obstacles may come your way. Your journey is unique and valuable. Trust your gut, make your own path, and everything will work out in the end.

The truth is, those phrases don’t always bring relief. But I want you to know that you are not alone. I want you to hold on and trust that things will get better. It’s completely okay to feel sad and to express those emotions. This is a tough time, but it’s also an opportunity for growth and strength. You are capable and strong. Don’t give up, my dear friend.

The Courage to Feel
Hi there, my dear,
I know it’s not easy for you to be here now.
Where words lost all meaning,
but when they say: “just be strong” or “all will be fine”
you get upset, and your chest gets tight,
you just want to scream and cry,
but your eyes remain dry…
Words don’t make you feel better
In fact, they may hurt.
So I wish I could hug you from miles away
and through time, I would fly to get rid of your pain.
I understand it feels like the world is filled with dust,
so you can’t see far enough to allow yourself to go and to trust,
and the breathing is tough,
and whenever you look, you can’t see the light,
you can’t find the goodness, It seems,
But I plea you to try and to trust it is here,
and you know what you know,
and you hear what you hear,
you remember that light and darkness
with highs and lows
are a natural process of life for us all,
we all go through this once in a while,
so I hear you,
and I feel your heart as it beats right here
And there is no need to understand or make sense of it now,
But please know it will end soon,
One morning you’ll wake up, and you’ll see the sun,
the sun that is shining for you,
and you’ll hear little birds all around
singing a beautiful song just for you,
and you’ll feel how the tender breeze caresses your skin
as if you’re the most cherished being in the world,
And you’ll feel you’re Alive and Well,
Striving to Live and see the joy in each day
and as you rise
in every little thing you do and touch
you’ll embrace a new way to stride;
and you’ll see that all the darkest moments of your life
made you a wiser, deeper, more compassionate, and loving being,
so you can be there for every living-breathing thing.
But for now, I just ask you to hope for the best,
And never give up, knowing the light will be back,
This time of your life might be here for a reason
but I promise you’ll look back on it knowing
that you’re all right, and that
It’s okay to feel sad right now, it’s allowed.
Pour your heart on the paper, or sing a song,
Curl up under a blanket and let your tears flow,
Be alone if you have to,
dance like mad if you want,
do whatever you need to,
But deep down, remember that this is a stage,
and the main actor is you,
and that this is your story, your life, and your tears,
you’re in charge of it all,
so let the tears flow as you write it your way,
the way you want it to go;
I believe you can do it,
you’re amazing and strong,
you get brighter and wiser,
in the experience, you grow.
