Are You Ok?

Are You Ok?

My answer is always “Yeah”, but it’s not the truth. I’m not okay.

I’m struggling with so many things on a daily basis. Sometimes it’s one thing weighing on me and sometimes it’s nothing at all. I just feel heavy.

I’m always second-guessing. “Did I do the right thing?” “Am I who I’m supposed to be?” “Am I a good person?”

I fear for my family. “Will we stay healthy?” “If anything happens to my babies, I don’t know what I’d do.” “Am I a good mom?”

I look at myself and struggle with acceptance. “If I could only lose x-amount of pounds.” “Why do I have so many pimples?” “Why am I so anxious?” “Am I too much for people?”

I preach positivity when I’m struggling with it constantly. I put on a happy face, but on the inside I’m falling apart.

Mental load is real. It is heavy. It is valid. If you’re having a hard time, just know you’re not alone. The next time someone asks, “Are you okay?” be honest. If they’re asking, they care. Let them in.

Hang in there. If you need a safe space, I’m here too.”
