It’s OK not to be OK

Firstly a huge thanks to everyone who messaged me or left a comment about my last blog post.

I went out last night, wasn’t feeling like I should at all. I was just about holding it together until a couple of people were kind to me and then I lost it and started blubbering like a baby.

I still have no clue what on earth is wrong with me but a very kind lady let me talk. She was so supportive and helpful. I can’t thank her enough.

I’m off to Germany with Jono for a couple of days which couldn’t have come at a better time and I’ll deal with ‘this’ when I get back.

If you are feeling the same do talk to someone, it really does help.

  1. Hey Val,
    Sometimes we just get carried away by life and caught up in the tumble weed forever rolling and increasing until something gets snagged and then BOOM !!! It all has to come out … its ok and totally acceptable we just got to learn to do it sooner rather than later…the less stress the better eh. Have a wonderful relaxing trip XXX

  2. Dear Val, Just catching up now. First of all those latest photos!! Full of soul and beauty. Sometimes I think it’s the dark side that allows that to come through. I have no answers at all dear Val, one day at a time is all I know. The stuff of the world is hugely hard to handle for sensitive souls. Enjoy Jono and Germany. Reach out when you need to. Tears are healing you. I’m sending you big LOVE xxx

  3. Oh Val, I feel for you, have been there. I always say, “don’t hold back tears” it is a release of emotions. You will find there are kind people who genuinely care and will just listen. You will come back from this and its ok to say no to invites, don’t have any guilt, people understand if you just say you don’t feel like company. I hope you have a lovely relaxing time in Germany. I will say a prayer for you at the Holy Well.

  4. Thank you for your honesty, Val. Life (and sometimes social situations) can be overwhelming. It’s okay to not be okay. You’ve got friends, even out in the blogosphere, who are willing to listen.
