I Am Not Okay, But I'll Manage

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 611 People

    I'm totally ****** up.

    I'm late in life, no girl, no money, I skate downhill and I don't care about what people think of me. I miss something in life, I like to drink but I have different brakes. I've been in a deep depression few years ago and I didn't cure myself. I keep thinking about death and I...

    Toe everyone in here

    who is true to their word, good for you. You know yourself, that's more than a lot of people can say for themselves. But that doesn't make the fact that you aren't okay go away. I don't know what to type to help you because I don't know any if your stories. But I do know that...

    Sometimes you just reach a point

    where you tell yourself you have to get your life together. Unfortunately for me, that point is now.

    A Quick Fix To My Indistinguishable Fire

    I’m attending counselling again. I’ve also been recommended for group therapy.  I like one-on-one counselling.  For me, it’s a good way to  work out my issues.  The group therapy I’m going to have to work on harder.  I imagine it will do nothing but good for me, but...

    I'm Not Okay, I Promise

    I'm not okay, as a matter of fact. I have more issues than a magazine stand, and I happen to be quite stuck in terms of health, finances, and relationships. I can't bear to write yet another story that lists every single one of my problems, but I will assure you that I have tried...

    I Want To Be Real

    This is hard for me, I am almost 35, but I just found a book my wonderful grandparents gave me on my 7th birthday. I don't think I read it until now, but it really hit me hard. I love my grandparents, and they both passed away in the past few years. Anyway, I miss them...

    When you have Tourette's,

    you can't pretend to be okay, even when you're not. People notice and understand there's something wrong with you. When you have social anxiety and you park your car in front of the mall, but end up driving home rather than shopping, then you're not okay. When you're deeply...

    The Truth About Love

    Maybe I'm wrong but all I've ever known about love is pain. I've fallen in love only to get cheated on. I've reinstated my faith in love only to become disappointed as I watch others around me cheat and lie to the ones they say they love. They all have the audacity to throw that...

    Nope

    Right now, I am not okay, I am very far from okay right now, but I am mangaging. I am waking up. I am doing what I have to do to get through the day. I am manging.

    I spent so long telling myself that being alone would be okay because there wouldn't be anyone to hurt me anymore. But, I've come to realize that the loneliness would hurt me.
