When you’re used to constantly showing strength, you feel out of element when you have to be weak
It’s rarely about the perception of others
Your emotions may make you feel like you’re letting yourself down
But remember, it’s okay not to be okay
There are times when unknown fears start creeping in
When you look for strength but it eludes you
Your heart tires
And your soul aches
You feel like life’s a battle field
And you’re terribly losing the war
But remember it’s okay not to be okay
Some times life gets heavy
The waves get wavy
For every time you feel like you’re drowning
Look closely and you’ll see life guards ready to help keep you afloat
You’re never alone in life’s rocky boat.
It’s okay not be okay …
But eventually, you will be okay.
And when words are not enough, I hope songs like this one help you pull through:
Dedicated to everyone who battles with anxiety and depression,
Dedicated to everyone who has felt like throwing in the towel one too many times
Dedicated to you
Dedicated to me ….
