This is something that I use to struggle with. In my head, I use to think that talking about how I felt was just way to vulnerable and open for my liking. “Just keep it to yourself Kay, others don’t need to know what you are dealing with.” Things I would tell myself over and over again to keep myself from sharing or speaking out. After years of keeping things bottled inside, I had to realize that I’m human. It’s ok to cry, it’s ok to vent and talk to your friends about the things you battle with. It’s ok to not have it all together for once. If you think that you must have it together all the time, guess what? You DON’T! You’re human. You owe it to yourself to feel pain and to express that pain with others. It’s ok. You can cry if you need to, it’s ok. It’s ok to let it out. It’s ok to not be ok. You don’t have to be strong all the time.
