I Am Going to Be Okay

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 364 People

    I am okay these days.

    I can't believe how long I have been on EP and how much I have written. I would usually put my thoughts in a journal, but posting online, and having someone heart or comment on your experience was a comfort during painful times. These days I am busy and happy that I am busy...

    Empathy, Not Sympathy

    If I described myself as a lonely middle-aged alcoholic you'd probably think I was going for the Sympathy Vote, but that's not how it is at all. I know how things are, I don't blame anyone else for the way things are, and I know I still have things better than a lot of folks. I...

    So my husband has been gone

    for about two weeks and will be home in a few days.. This break has been so beneficial for us. I got to take a step back and reflect on our relationship and realized a lot. I do miss him to some extent but it's been so nice not being suffocated by his negative energy. What this...

    Go Into The Light

    I wish someone tells me

    that I will be okay now. I'm not sure if what I'm doing is the right thing. I'm scared and struggling inside.

    Sometimes I get worked up about things

    and I take things to heart really quickly but despite that, I get over things pretty quickly with just concentrated periods of emotion and depression that last a few days. Once those are over, I'm sure I'll be okay. The worst will have passed and I truly believe that I will get...

    What does “ok” look like?

    I am not happy. But I am not sad. I just am. I’m looking out the window, a soft, cool breeze touches my face. But I am numb, after hurting for so long. Birds are singing. The leaves rustle as the wind blows through. But I hear nothing. I am only waiting, in this… is sub...

    I've Survived

    I'm more afraid of never knowing than fearing the unknown itself. The unknown does not scare me. What's there to be scared of? I will be fine no matter how my life turns out. My life will not be over when I get rejected or turned away. I am starting to understand that maybe...
