You are probably wondering whether or not you will ever get over this "bad day" that has lasted a week, a month, or maybe even longer than that. I know that it may be affecting everything around you, and making it difficult to accomplish your daily tasks. But it is OK that you aren't feeling OK.

Sometimes, you may have periods of time where you have to cry and be sad, but that doesn't make you any less of a person. You are still stronger than you believe. You can still accomplish anything. You are still able to pick up yourself and move on to the next day. It is OK to not be OK. You are going to hit some rough patches, but everything happens for a reason.

The pain that you are feeling today is opening up your heart for joy tomorrow. You have to get rid of the bad to make space for the good, and the changes that are coming your way are going to be worth the wait. Take the time that you need to get yourself back on track, because the feelings you are feeling right now are valid and you deserve to get yourself back to normal.

Your mental health is serious and it is worth preserving. Things will fall into place and it is OK to not be OK, but it is not OK to rush through life because you think you should feel a certain way. Make sure that everything you do in your life benefits you, because you only get one life and you need to live it for yourself.

Take the mental health days. Cry the tears. Reach out to your friends. Feel your feelings. Just know that no matter what, it is OK to not be OK.
