Don't Be Ashamed Of Finally Being Okay

Don't Be Ashamed Of Being OK, Even When Everyone Else Isn't

You have waited for this, now embrace it.

Kate Moore

I have been waiting years and years to be good. To finally get through my insecurities and to be okay with myself. I would look for help and phone a friend, but now, now I am finally good.

Do not feel ashamed that you are thriving. Do not be ashamed that you found your thing in life.

The roles have reversed. Now that I am finally good, everyone else needs the help. Everyone else is coming to me for the help and honestly, it is getting hard to give that help.

I try so hard to give people kind, honest, and empathetic advice. But lately, I feel like I have been reliving all of the experiences I have gone through.

I am a strong advocate for sharing my experiences with the world and trying to help people handle theirs.

But I realized, I am not a healer.

I try and try and try to heal everyone around me, I make their problems my problems, and it is starting to affect me.

Now that I am finally okay with myself, no one else is okay. There is only so much advice you can give. There are only so many nights you can stay up listening and giving people feedback.

Honestly, I am getting sick of telling people the same thing until I am blue in the face.

I get that some people are just talkers and don't listen to or respect feedback. But when someone comes to me with the same issue, the same problem for years, I just wish I could jump inside their minds and physically do the hard work for them.

I need to lay low. Chill out. And realize that I cannot be here to fix everyone.

It's so nice to finally be good.

4 Ways The Plan To Deport International Students Is Dumb, According To An Exchange Student

The whole policy isn't very stay-in-place, if you ask me.

On Monday, July 6, new federal guidelines were announced that do not allow international students to remain in the U.S. unless they are taking classes in person. Which, if you ask me, is stupid.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
