I was just walking the dog and bumped into a friend I’d not seen in a while. As is customary, he asked me how I am. I thought for a moment and realised, I’m okay!
It has been a while since I said that and really meant it. Usually it’s just the answer we are all programmed to say. But not this time.
Why would you care? Am I rubbing it in? No. I’m trying to show people that they can feel okay. I’ve been to the depths of depression in my life, but today… I’m okay. That means you can be as well.
It may take time. It did for me. It may take help and support. It did for me. It may take medication. It did for me.
But, it’s possible. You can feel okay again.
How are you?
