I’M TAKING OFF THE MASK….it’s okay not to be okay

Is it okay not to be okay?

Aren’t you just tired of the pressure from our society to always be okay? I mean, we smile and pretty up our faces with loads of make up when sometimes all we want to do is go somewhere quiet and cry.

Is it okay to look into another person’s face sometimes and say, ‘No, I’m not okay, No, I don’t want your pity, I just don’t feel like pretending and it sucks that you act as though you have your own life together when you don’t. If you were a bit more open about what is really going on with you, maybe I won’t feel like such an idiot for not being okay’.

Why can’t we all be honest with each other once in a while. Social media is so irritating when it comes to this. Sometimes you don’t want to post your best pictures and you don’t want to use a proper caption. You just want to say it as it really is and hope someone somewhere will understand and maybe empathise. But that doesn’t happen, because everybody is so busy pretending. But the joke is on us! Life is short, the people we try so hard to impress are not half as important as we think they are. They’re just humans with their own problems, heartaches and headaches as well. I dare you to take off that mask and tell me what is really happening with you.


This sounds a bit strange doesn’t it?  I’m just saying that it’s okay to be broken, hurt, discouraged, sad, unmotivated, etc. It’s okay! Don’t try to pretend or cover it up. What we need to do is to deal with it. Yes, we’ve got to deal  with all the negativity boiling through us every now and then because when we don’t, we end up hurting not only ourselves but others too.
Anyway, I really hope I’m not the kind of person who makes people feel as if they have to be okay all the time.
I hope that when people come around me, they can instinctively tell that with me, it’s okay not to be okay.
I hope they know that they don’t have to pretend or put up any airs.

Life is short folks. Pretending is boring and honesty is much more exciting and liberating. So tell me, are you okay? Do you need someone to cry with you? Do you want to talk about it? If you don’t, then it’s alright. But if you do, then baby, I’m all ears….. Continue reading “I’M TAKING OFF THE MASK….it’s okay not to be okay”



We walked this road
‘Cross this path
We sang these words
But only a lifetime ago

Your eyes would dance
And mine would blink
Once, twice three times
Yes, we’ve all been here before.

Shrubs a vivid green
Roses a vibrant red
Lilles and violets
More of all things pretty

Love could never trifle
With what was pure and simple
Pride had never fumbled
In matters of heart so humble

Once, twice, three times
Yes, we’ve all been here before
Shut your eyes to see
Youre back again with Eve.
