Sometimes its Ok to not be OK.
Growing up in Ireland, there is a habit to put a positive spin on everything. People are very uncomfortable if you are any less than OK. Not matter whats life’s circumstances are, the response to ‘How are you?’ is ‘Im grand’, not wanting to burden others with your sorrows.
Well sometimes I am not grand, sometimes Im bloody shit and thats OK, and then something happens, in the debts of me accepting that I am not OK, I am suddenly OK. And then thats OK too. Welcome to life!
