Is It Really Okay to Not Be Ok?

Many of us view success as pretty, handsome, moneyed, good job, well-liked…

Then when we don’t achieve success for any of the reasons listed below or more…

  • Haven’t finished (or started) college
  • Don’t have the right job
  • Grew up in the wrong neighborhood
  • Married… didn’t marry
  • Wrong skin color, gender, religious belief

We wonder why we feel defeated, depressed, uninspired.

Or, we have “everything going for ourselves”, outwardly as my mom would say, and yet we feel defeated, depressed, or uninspired inside. Today in our How to ❤️ Love ❤️ Yourself More…Intentionally clubhouse, we talked about how being pretty and beautiful are NICE, but have nothing to do with how you feel inside. People are obsessed with looks and fortune. How can you be sad and depressed when you have good looks and wealth?

Easy!

As my co-moderator said, we are “cracked glass” and looking out we don’t see our external beauty and wealth. We only feel brokenness and sadness. Many of us live in quiet desperation and don’t know how to find our way out.

Suicide is not the answer.

I’ve lost several family members to suicide and while I don’t know exactly what each one felt before taking their life, I know what it feels to be the one left to pick up the pieces and try to figure out what happened? Each member had worth and value but did not feel that there was another way for their story to be told.

One of the best things you can do is open up and share your pain with a supportive friend, group, or a therapist. The other thing to do is remember, you are unique with a God-given purpose! Be who you want to be instead of a copy of someone else. Stop buying the “image” and be the original – one of a kind – amazing you!
