Real Talk – It’s Okay If You’re Just Getting By

  • Save

Happy Day 4,578, or whatever, of quarantine ladies! So this one has really been getting to me. I have read so many memes, and posts saying… “If you don’t learn 10 new languages by the time this is over, you wasted your time” or “You should being using this time to become the best version of you” or “You should be committing this time to building your side hustle”. Obviously these are dramatic examples, but you get the drift!

I’m here to say, it’s okay if you’re doing none of that. It’s okay if you are simply taking it day by day, and trying to survive.

We aren’t all sitting at home looking for something to do: Some of us have been thrown into a new work from home environment. Some of us are doing that on top of homeschooling children. Some are essential and still working under more stressful conditions. Surviving the day may be your victory, and good on you for making it!

We all handle stress differently: Some of us may handle stress by focusing energy into a project, or exercise, etc. But for every one of us that does that, there is someone else who feels overwhelmed and can’t even process what is going on. These are weird, weird times y’all, so it’s okay to not have it together. If you want to do a project, do it! If you want to have wine for lunch, do it! If you want to scream & cry into a pillow, do it! Point is do what you have to do to survive these times!

We aren’t all living the same life we were a couple months ago: Some of us have lost our jobs and are freaked about the future. Some of us are looking in the face of pay cuts while our companies try to survive. Maybe your work life hasn’t changed financially, but your duties & stress have skyrocketed. We aren’t all expected to thrive during chaos. Taking life one day at a time, and doing what it takes to take care of our families is good enough.

We all miss our family & friends: I’m sure we all miss the people we love! I surly do! I am also surprised at how emotionally draining that can be. I at least have my husband around to hang out with, but he can’t fill the void for my besties, my parents, my nieces & nephews… It’s okay to just have some wine and a good cry because you miss people!

It’s okay if you’re worried, and just trying to keep going right now. You are definitely not alone! Keep pushing y’all, and keep telling yourself that this too shall pass. Celebrate the little victories like getting dressed, or brushing your hair. Call the people you love and reach out when you’re feeling overwhelmed because most of us are right there with ya!

Be patient with each other, this is a new world for all of us <3
