You Will Be Okay

Right now, you’re struggling. It feels like life is going on without you, like there’s some party, some place everyone has gotten to, and you’re still trying to muster up the strength to get out of bed.

Right now, you’re hurting. Maybe your heart is a little bruised. Maybe someone dropped it on the floor. You miss people and wonder if they miss you. You’re aching. There’s a dull pain that keeps lingering.

But eventually, the clouds will clear. Eventually, the sun you thought was permanently lost will shine again.

Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. Maybe not as quickly as you’d like.

But you will be okay.

Don’t underestimate human strength. You are a resilient creature far more powerful than you realize.

The bad days don’t stay bad forever.

The struggle might lead to success.

The hurt might transform into something else.

For now, it’s okay to not be okay.

But remember, one day, you will be. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
