It’s ok not to be ok

Sad news about Chester Bennington whose lyrics got me through a lot as a teenager.

I just want to say again that #itsoknottobeok because it is! It’s ok to feel low. We are human and we have emotions and sometimes those emotions grow too big for us to cope with alone. We need help and support.

But if we don’t ask for help because we are scared of being judged by others, this can be the result. And that is not ok. So if you sense that someone is low or struggling, don’t force them to tell you why (sometimes we simply don’t know) but just be there for them. Remind them that they can lean on you without judgment. That you’ll sit in silence with them if that’s what they need.

Trust me it will save lives #mentalhealthawareness 💙 #chesterbennington
