HEY !!

Recently I wrote a few articles related to positivity and happiness. I'm just going to state the obvious right now - I'm obviously not such a cheerful and optimistic person all the fricking time! I have my ups and downs just like everyone else. And just because I write articles that give advice and tips on boosting happiness, prioritizing self-care and improving lives doesn't mean that I'm a perfectly happy person 24/7 ( well, I wish I am but that's unfortunately impossible ).

SO ,

Yes, my articles might make me seem as though I'm someone who has all her shit together, but that's really not the case. I have my own personal struggles just like any of you guys as well. Writing these articles made me realize in a way that I'm not alone - that I'm not the only one that wants to know how to improve myself or widen my perspective on life. I know you lovely hearters appreciate and find my articles useful ( thank you, really ). Knowing that strangers out there liked my articles really made me realize that a lot of us just really wants to be happier / take care of our well-being more / improve our lives.

BUT !!

You're NOT ALONE. Chances are, many others feel shitty on your shitty days as well. Hey, we probably share similar shitty days!! And every single one of us WILL get through the hard times TOGETHER. You might not be convinced now but I am a strong believer that everything will be FINE.

Whatever difficulties or hardships you're facing right now, just know that they'll pass eventually. Until then, PRESS ON!!! You've already come so far, why stop now?

IF ,

You're looking for a sign. This is it. This article is the sign. The sign to encourage you to continue being you, staying true and pressing onwards. The sign to remind you that everything will be alright because

everything will be okay in the end. if it's not okay, it's not the end.

LISTEN. I know, I know. I know that almost everyone heard of this quote before. But it really gets me going forward and I hope it does the same for you.

ACCEPTANCE !!

This is something similar to what I've mentioned in my previous article - acceptance. You can check it out right here :

( title drop in 3, 2, 1 ... ) IT'S OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY. ( and apparently it's so important that I have to capitalize it !!! ) It's also okay to not feel okay.

ACCEPT that shitty days exist. KNOW that things will get better. UNDERSTAND that improvement takes time.

It's fine if you feel down on some days. It's fine if you don't feel like leaving your house. It's fine if you aren't at your best. It's fine if you aren't in the mood for anything. I've repeatedly emphasized on how important self-care is. Prioritise yourself first if you need to.

People say time doesn't wait for anyone and that life goes on even when you're not caught up with it. Let me tell you that no one will ALWAYS be caught up with it. And that ( whoop, title drop yet again ) it IS okay to not be/feel okay. I'm not just saying this because all I do is write articles in hopes of making others feel better about themselves ( okay, partly. But I've received so many messages on how my articles helped you guys and WOW I'm extremely grateful and touched xx ), but also because I have my own problems.

There are times where I feel shitty as well. To the point where I neglect my own health and happiness. It was a mistake, but I learned from it and now I'm all about inspiring and encouraging others to put themselves first if they need to. It IS that important.

This article is written based on my own experiences and how I've learned from it to become a stronger, happier person. I genuinely hope some of you find it helpful or motivating!
