"It's okay to not be okay." A look back and why it's still relevant today.

When we say "It's okay to not be okay" what does that mean? Recently, I came face to face with this truth again. I was talking with a coworker who was struggling to meet the company-set goals. As a result, he was feeling down about himself.

We talked about it briefly, and he vented a little about his frustrations. He talked about how his luck seemed to be horrible, and it seemed to him that nobody else was struggling. Have you ever been there? Do you relate to the old "Hee Haw" song that declared if it wasn't for bad luck, you'd have no luck? Then take heart. I have good news. It goes back to the quote in the first question. It's okay to not be okay. It's okay to lose your cool every once in a while. It's okay to vent, and it's okay to feel down from time to time. It is okay to not be okay. Just remember that you don't have to unpack your bags and live there.

After all, just as this t-shirt from The Inspirational Connection would say, "Your story is not over yet."
