Emotional Baggage

When you’re not okay

Where do you go when you’re not okay?
Who do you go to when the people who love you don’t quite understand?
How do you stay strong around the ones who expect it of you?
What do you do when you just want to disappear into the background?
Why is it so hard to accept the challenges that life brings?

When is it okay to fall apart?

  1. Good questions with no good answers, unfortunately.

    Though, I do want to say, it is always okay to fall apart. Your family and friends should be there to hold you up and put things back together…

    1. Usually me falling apart = fighting with DH. He is the worst for moral support. I am about to leave the rest of my support network, so I don’t know where else to go. 😦

    1. I’ve already packed my cork screw and I’ve already had the last of the screw cap bottles… Running it is, I guess.

      1. LOL! Sorry, I had to laugh. I can’t imagine what it’s like leaving a home you love for the unknown. I’m sure you will look back on your time fondly and very quickly make new memories.

        July 1 is rapidly approaching and soon enough you will be so busy being an intern that you won’t even have time to breathe …

        Now how’s that for the voice of reason?! 😉

  2. I don’t have the answers, but I do know that it’s okay to not be okay. And you’re allowed to fall apart. You don’t always have to be strong, even though it feels like you do. ❤

    1. I just don’t know how to fall apart. I want to, but I’m afraid to let it happen, you know? Maybe that’s what some people call “resiliency, but I just call it “being paralyzed”

  3. I write things out. Sometimes I hit publish, other times it’s in longhand and I rip it up after.

    I bug people on twitter or Facebook. Not about the issue, but just to distract myself.

    I am sorry you are going through feeling this way. You have had a lot happen in the past three months, so do what you have to in order to take care of yourself.

    1. Thanks. I feel like I am running out of people to bug… I definitely have been trying to write, but I don’t even know what I feel anymore, I feel like a big empty void 😦

  4. You shorten your days. You get through the morning, then the afternoon, then the night. Repeat until you’re ready to take on more again.

    And you do it all with a smile, because someone else is going through it as well and needs your smile today.

    And when necessary, cry. After all, to grow anything it takes some rain.
