It’s Okay To Not Be Okay!     A Poem by JaySoJay

It’s okay to not be okay

It’s okay to feel sad somedays

It’s okay to actually feel your pain.

It’s okay to stop carrying the weight

It’s okay to go out on a date

It’s okay to show up for yourself

And not be late.

It’s okay to cry

It’s okay to be shy

It’s okay to say goodbye.

It’s okay to put yourself first

Because it’s not okay to disregard your needs

Pleasing people hurts, and it hurts you the worse.

It’s okay to smile

It’s okay to laugh

It’s okay to say ‘No’

And if people are displeased with your happiness

It’s okay to tell people that they have to Go!


“A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.” Proverbs 15:1
