Take a deep breath and relax because it’s all going to work out better than you expected. While we enjoy the bright sun in summer or the colorful spring days. The snowflakes or the air of fall season, there will always be some stormy and windy days that we won’t like. Those days will always be where all we would want to do is, sneak up into our blankets and hope that the day comes to an end. These are similar to the emotions we feel. Emotions are one hell of a roller coaster, my friend. We have our highs and lows regarding them, and yes, it is completely fine to feel whatever we do. It’s okay not to be okay. We need not be at our best every single day. It’s okay to cry, to be sad and overwhelmed. It’s okay to let go of people you care about. It’s okay to just sit down and be with yourself for a while. Sometimes we need to be aloof to reconnect with ourselves to get back to life. Time heals everything, even the wounds that may not be physical but emotional. The wounds that hurt us like a knife stabbed in our heart. Over time they may fade, but they never go. They are with us like scars and cold cuts. Sometimes they pinch us, and it happens because they are associated with people, we once loved the most. It becomes difficult for us to understand at that very moment, that all they do is play as factors that help us grow and become a person much stronger and healthier.
The bruises that cause us the pain at that time, nurture us to be a better somebody, later. It is alright to be broken. It is being human. The world has formed these toxic standards of society where expressing emotions, is termed to be weak. Why don’t they understand that it is difficult to be “fine” sometimes? Why is it so hard to understand that someone might be faking a laugh on the outside but crying a river on the inside? Why can’t they accept that not every time are we in the “happily ever after” of our story? Why? Is it to show the world that their life is perfect? Or to portray that all life has to offer is happiness? Let me ask you, is life really about showing or portraying something to these people? Who are they? Why do you want them to decide what matters to you and what doesn’t?
Take control of yourself and your life, because if you won’t somebody else will. Why give the steering wheel of your journey in somebody else’s hands? I’ll be a little cliché and say that it is perfect to be imperfect. There is nothing wrong with crying out loud or yelling when you are angry. There is nothing wrong with being with yourself, being together but with your heart, mind and soul. It’s alright if all you want to do is eat and watch Netflix. Give yourself a break. Sometimes escaping reality helps us to find the strength, required to face the actuality of our reality. Take time. Take days or months or years until one day you get over it and let it go from within. Until the day your heart feels a little fixed and your soul a little calm. Let the storm in you, raise your strength and abilities. Don’t let it destroy you, let it give you a clean slate to have a new beginning. To be the person you have wanted to be. To accomplish all your goals and meet your destiny. To fall in love with yourself. Because one day, it will all work out and with a smile on your face and confidence in your heart, you’ll say “I am fine.” :)
