Let me say it

Let me say it

I am tired of

putting on a show and

giving out signals of

smiles, rainbows and “all clear”

Let me say it

I am tired of

painting it happy

Don’t ask me to say;

It’s okay

Stop telling me;

everything is

A part of me knows that

it will be, eventually

I am not weak enough to

lose it all

But right now

let me say it

Everything is not okay

  1. It’s upsetting when people only want to see you smiling and imagine everything would always be wonderful with you. Somedays are not like that. A little frown is ok. Have a moment with wrongs so you can cherish the rights in life. Hope to see you soon smiling:)

  2. I used to be exactly like this a while back, but now I honestly don’t give a damn about what people say. When I’m depressed I don’t hide it anymore. I now sometimes lash out at my friends, but they don’t mind it, they actually like it that I’m being honest and true to my feelings. So if you have the right people around you, you no longer have to pretend to be happy when you’re not. Life’s much easier this way 🙂

  3. Sometimes you just have to say it. Sometimes we just have to press pause on the show, and let people see how we’re really feeling.

  4. Coming over from The Sunday Wrap. This is wonderful. Truth is spoken in your words and sometimes you just have to say that it is not okay. Thanks for sharing such brave words.

  5. I say we all just start answering this ‘How are you?’ question honestly and openly then at some point people will stop expecting ‘i’m fine’ as the norm and we might all feel better for the conversation … hang on in there 😉
