Why is it so challenging to admit when we are not okay? Why is it easier to feign a smile and say, “I’m okay?”
How many times, yesterday, did I say, I’m okay? In truth, I was anything but okay. Yesterday, I was the opposite of “okay.” Still, I said, I’m okay.
What does that even mean?
For me, it means that I have been holding onto some things that I am not meant to hold. It means, I need to trust God and cast my cares on Him, because I cannot do this on my own. Honestly, I need to let go of some things. I need to reach out. I need to “… lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.”
Finally, I made a conscious decision to be honest about how I was really feeling. I knew that I couldn’t stay there. I couldn’t linger in a state of okay, that was really, not okay.
It’s so important to be aware about our emotional state. Even more important to reach out when we are not okay.
