It’s Okay To Be Where You Are

It’s okay that you aren’t like anyone else, even if you want to be.

It’s okay that your breath escapes differently from your lungs.

It’s okay that you aren’t like your best friend.

It’s okay that your body is doing all that it can to hold you and allow you to survive.

It’s okay that you cry at the drop of a hat or that you don’t cry at all.

It’s okay that your passions and desires are changing.

It’s okay that you don’t know where you’re going.

It’s okay that you feel lost.

It’s okay that you’ve changed your mind about love and life a thousand times.

It’s okay that your thoughts get the best of you.

It’s okay that yesterday it was hard for you to get out of bed.

It’s okay that you’re heartbroken and that you’re trying everything you can think of to keep moving forward. It’s okay that you feel the most lonely that you have ever felt. It’s okay that you don’t know how to deal with your depression, or how to cope with your anxiety. It’s okay that you don’t know how to tell your family and friends how you feel. It’s okay that you wake up in the middle of the night with the same nightmares. It’s okay that he left you and now you have to find a way to move on.

It’s okay that you’re here.

It’s okay that you’re you.

Trust me, it’s all okay.

And god, one day it’s going to be even better than okay. One day you will look at these okay moments and you will realize that you survived them with grace. You’ll look back at the times you were just okay and realize that these were the building blocks you needed to restart your life. You’ll realize that these moments that were just okay would be the turning point of your life, and some of the best moments you had ever experienced.

Yet for now, it’s okay to just be okay. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
