Unpopular Opinion: It’s okay to not be okay is a poor message to give people.
This message genuinely comes from good intent, but it does not help people grow, or push through problems. Society today is fragile, and politically correct.
Getting rid of messages that are softer and for good reasons but do not provide help. We need to realize that we are not okay, and find the reasons why and push through or around whatever obstacles are in the way. Constant reminders that it is okay contributes to people becoming psychologically content, and this makes it that much harder to get them to the spot they CAN be, instead of where they are.
I’ve been here, and I have family and friends that have been in those positions. I’m sure most people have. For me it took constantly saying this is not okay to grow myself, and move closer to where I can and want to be.
How about you?
