In this world of perfection, you need to hear it sometimes. It is ok not to be ok. This is how you will develop as a person and a human being. So keep this in mind when you do not feel like you are in your best mood. Or when things do not go like planned. This is your fast forward to learning!
When we meet someone on the street that we know, the question always comes- How are you? A spontaneous question, expecting a similar spontaneous response – Fine. But could you actually say – thanks for asking but no, I am not ok.. most of us have not tried this because we do not want to break that pattern of the easy going conversation, right? Even if it would be ok not to be ok, we do not dare or do not want to spill it out to someone we “hardly” now. Or?
Think about it the next time you get that question – How are you? And take the opportunity to notice how you really feel before you answer. And chose the honest answer instead of the expected one.
Because, it is OK not to be OK. And when you start being honest to yourself and others, things will start to happen.
Wish you the best. Take Care. Namaste.
