What ‘It’s OK Not To Be OK’ Really Means

This is kind of a wee daily reminder post. And it is motivational, hopefully, and not in away aimed at offending people.

We see this phrase everywhere. On buses, at school, on the school bullies Instagram post, everywhere. And it is 100% true. What I want to talk about though is what is left out from it. I sometimes worry that when people tell others ‘it’s OK to not be OK’ people just accept that that is who they are which is OK but then they don’t try to change it. What I mean is that it is totally OK to struggle with your thoughts, but you can’t ignore them. You need to go and get help, admit your struggle and open up. The phrase, ‘it’s OK not to be OK’ is a reassurance that you aren’t weird or crazy. And it doesn’t mean that you just need to leave it now. It doesn’t mean that you can just leave it be because mental health problems are OK, as long as you try to help them.

I really hope you all understand what I mean because sometimes I can find it really hard to communicate what I mean with my words. It may sound rude what I just said but I just want everyone to understand that everyone who struggles with their thoughts deserves to be helped. No matter how bad you think your thought are or aren’t, you all deserve help. And just because someone says that it is OK that you think those thoughts, it doesn’t mean they are OK to live with everyday. They mean that you aren’t crazy and that you can get over it. No matter what others say, you struggle with your thoughts. You can’t let anyone tell you it’s just a bad day, because only you know that. They can’t see behind the mask you hide behind. I am going to say this to you again in a more informed way, ‘You are thinking is not crazy, your thoughts are all valid, thank you for admitting that to me. Now I can help you get help and everything will be OK’.

Obviously it is quicker to say ‘it’s OK not to be OK’ but I just hope that you don’t think that people are degrading what you are going through. Please don’t take it as people being like ‘yeah I mean your feelings are valid but that’s a normal thing that you need to live with’ because that is completely wrong. So please get help. You may think you aren’t ‘bad’ enough to get help, but if you are struggling, it doesn’t matter what anyone else is going through because this is your life and you deserve to be happy, no matter what.

Over all, just know that you are loved and that it is OK not to be OK if you can get help. Thank you for reading.
