On bad days, I come home and I get on my phone and out of habit I check my social media. I see all these gorgeous girls and happy guys, and perfect people. And then I think, "I should be okay. I have to hold this in, all of these people have their life together, so why shouldn't I?" So then I bottle up my emotions and listen to music and go on Pinterest or Twitter. Now I know that almost all of us are guilty of bottling up our emotions sometimes and trying to hold it in. And that is not okay. I strongly encourage you to just let it out. Turn on your favorite movie and cry it out. Or go to the local gym and punch the pushing bag a dozen times. But do NOT HOLD IT IN. Here are a few reasons why it is okay, to not be okay.
EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON. I know that all of us have a trial of some sort in our life, and I promise you that whatever trial it is, it is happening for a reason. And you're going to be okay really soon. You may not see the reason now but someday you will and it will all make perfect sense. So go ahead and cry and be upset, but remember it will make sense one day.
BEING SAD OR ANGRY IS NORMAL. Do not let anyone try to make you feel stupid for crying or being angry. If someone says it is nothing to be sad or mad about, they do not understand. Because you are you, and they are not you. Only you understand how you are feeling. Do not let anyone tell you anything different. Especially guys, if I have any guys reading this, please know it is OKAY TO CRY. You are still strong, and the same man you were before you started crying, if anything crying made you stronger. Your emotions are normal, so please do not try to push them away.
DO NOT LET SOCIAL MEDIA FOOL YOU. The girl or guy that always looks like that they have their life together on Instagram, or Twitter, or any social media source, could be having such a hard time. They could be insecure, or sad, or they're having personal problems. Just because their picture looks perfect, it doesn't mean their life is perfect. I promise. So don't try to hold yourself together just for that, because you have no idea.
Well guys, I know that this blog post was kind of random. I didn't do a vote on it or anything. But I had a feeling that a few of you guys needed to hear this. In fact maybe I just needed to type it. But never forget that you are not alone and that I love you guys all tons. Thanks for reading!
