    It's okay not to be okay all the time.

    When you work to try to change your feelings, sometimes you're going against a natural part of you, which causes more pain and stress. Maybe you're sitting in a place of uncertainty for what you should do next. Perhaps you didn't get closure on what happened in a relationship...
