I’m Not Okay, You’re Not Okay, and That’s Okay
From the start, social media allowed us to show off our best moments. That’s still the case, but I am starting to see and hear people post and share some of their struggles.
What I’m saying is, it’s okay to admit everything isn’t great. That we need help, and we’re worried about our health and finances. I believe there is less judgment now when it comes to losing a job, having trouble making ends meet, and scrambling to care for kids who are home from school.
Lately, we’re seeing people wait in long lines to get food to feed their family (often for the first time in their lives) and it’s hard to watch. But it’s something they simply must do. Hopefully now they don’t have to worry what people will say or think of them for having to ask for, and accept assistance.
