It's completely understandable to not be okay right now. Whatever your situation, we all deserve to have a toolkit to help us when emotions arise. This helps us cope when things get stressful, so even if you're developing coping mechanisms to deal with a minor inconvenience, it trains your brain for other stressors along the way.
