I am okay

We keep putting ourselves down.
Over and over again.
At times it makes sense.
But it shouldn't.
And even though I don't know you,
I know how you've put yourself down.
And how much you don't deserve it.
Cheer up.
It's easier said than done, I know.
And there's nothing I can do to change it
I can try endlessly.
But it's only you.
It won't ever be easy to pick yourself up.
But you've got to do it.
In the midst of stress and chaos.
Stop.
It's not all terrible.
And soon enough,
today will be the past.
Breathe for a second.
The rest can wait.
Now repeat with me:
I am okay
I am okay
I am okay...
However many times it takes.
Until you're convinced.
You are okay,
you've always been.
Your phone is punishing you
with so much silence
when it is meant to aid your communication.
And the people you love
don't say much either.
You keep putting yourself down.
Stop.
Time for yourself
is never time wasted.
You are okay.
It's time to stop putting yourself down.
Happiness is always waiting for you
to shake off the tears and fears
and to just cut off the crap
and smile.
I am okay
And so are you.

I am just a foolish young person. I don't possess much wisdom to share. I struggle with everyday life because of how much I tend to overthink. But this is coming from the heart. I don't know who you are, but I'd love to. I'd love to know how I can help you, how I can use a simple email to brighten your face.
Let me know how to make you see that you are okay. And that okay is the beginning of amazing.

Don't forget to be awesome.
