It's okay to not be okay. It's okay to be breaking behind your smile or crying behind your bright eyes. It's okay to not want to make your bed or even get out of your bed.

It's okay to not be okay. It's okay to cry, it's okay to hurt. It's okay to be weak, it's okay to cry. It's okay not to push everything away, it's okay to pull it up and feel it and let it rip you apart. At lease for a little bit. Feeling something is a sign of strength, not of weakness.

It's okay to not be okay. It's okay to need your mother, to need your best friend. It's okay to miss your best friend. It's okay to scream into your mother's arms and be cradled by her and feel safe in her. It's okay to need someone, it's okay to be open, it's okay to not be okay.

It's okay to not be okay. It's okay to feel lost, it's okay to feel confused. It's okay to not have answers, it's okay to not know. It's okay to trust that you will know, that someday you will wake up and feel happy with exactly where you are.

It's okay to not be okay and it's okay to feel like you won't be okay. But always know that you're going to be okay, and that you're already on your way to being okay. Know that not being okay is the first step to being okay again.
