It’s ok to not be ok. You are “good enough” just as you are.
The birth of my second child showed me that the people in life expected me to capable …. to always be ok …. to always be coping.
I wasn’t supported for the person I am. It was acceptable for me not to be ok.
The reality of who I had in my life was hard to face, but I’m so glad I did. I now have people who support me for who I am, and are ok with me not being ok.
“You fell in love
With my flowers,
Not with my roots.
So when autumn arrived
You didn’t know what to do.
You fell in love
With my sunshine,
Not with my sky.
So when the darkness came
You disappeared from view.”
– Luna & Kat
