I’m sorry I haven’t posted this weekend. A lot of things has been going on. I want to ask you guys, how to be okay when you’re not really okay? I’m so drained and depressed right now and I’m sorry for posting this in my blogโ€“ but I know you guys can help me. I’ll just delete it later.

Anyway thank you so much Angela for featuring me in your Do You Know series. Thank you so so much. You made so happy yesterday. :))

  1. Hope you’re okay Jirah ๐Ÿ’— I think the only way to be okay when you’re really not is to let the “not” bit take it’s course. Otherwise you trying to feel okay will feel forced/fake and make it worse. Getting it off your chest and talking to family/friends might help and/or taking some time to yourself ๐Ÿ’—

  2. Don’t fake it. Take the time off that you need and talk to someone who’s there for you. Feel free to message/email/post to me when you need it! I’m always here xx.

    I am sorry to hear this, Jirah. I can only tell you to pray when things are taking its toll and as Elsie say, try talking to family and friends. I hope all is well. โค

  4. I’m sorry you’re not feeling at your best Jirah. I agree with the others that you should take the time off to do what makes you happy and come back when you’re ready! Feel better!

  5. Awwww Jirah I really hope you are okay!! It happens to us all at times so don’t feel bad about it!! We’re all here for you no matter what and all want you to be okay ๐Ÿ˜Š xx

  6. I know what it’s like to be depressed or just have other things going on. I haven’t posted anything in about 8 days now. I’ve just been busy and taking my time with my writing. Take your time with your writing. And I’ll pray for you for whatever you’re going through. Feel better, Jirah.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘

  7. Aw Jirah. You’re so welcome for being in my series! I absolutely love your blog and I’m glad it cheered you up! You don’t need to keep up a pretense with us, our blogs are a place to be ourselves, both ups and downs! You’ll get through this, focus on what you need to do, and we’ll be here when you get back ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. I really hope you start feeling better soon! And take all the time you need before coming back to blogging, and know the blogging community is here for you ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Sometimes there’s nothing you can do but just to wait for it pass. And while you’re down constantly tell yourself that it will be okay even if it doesn’t feel like it. It can be difficult to be optimistic but just remind yourself that things will be better eventually. It’s what I do, ’cause if I don’t, I’d be sucked into this black hole of sadness and it won’t be pretty.

    I hope this helps you, Jirah. ๐Ÿ™‚ Just hold on.

  10. I am sorry to hear you are not feeling alright, Jirah. I hope you have a good support system around you to support you in such times. It always helps to talk one’s heart out. xx

  11. I’m thinking of you girl, and you got a ton of us thinking of you and supporting you! Having good friends and family helps. Your heart is on Jesus, and scripture says God is close to the brokenhearted. I turned to scripture a lot and still do when I struggle. I want answers of assurance, and God completely comes through on that. I also suggest listening to worship music that you enjoy because He speaks to us in so many ways, and He knows our true heart. If there are pieces within yourself, like doubt, unforgiveness, grudges, anger, or bitterness even fear, talk to God openly about how you feel. He is our comfort, and the Holy Spirit who lives in us understands. Be ready to give up those feelings to Him, because girl, God will definitely take your burdens for you. He says, “My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” This world, and people can get us down. We can be too hard on ourselves. But Jesus loves us all through it. You are never by yourself. You are loved at all times. I’m thinking of you : )

  12. Iโ€™m sorry that youโ€™re feeling down right now Jirah. I donโ€™t know what youโ€™re dealing with at the moment but it too shall pass.
    When Iโ€™m feeling down, I try to talk to someone I trust to share my thoughts and feelings with. I try to listening to music that would make me feel better even though a temporary fix. I sometimes write in my journal to clear my head. There are instances where you just have to cry it out because all of those emotions can consume you if you donโ€™t find a healthy way to release them.
    Jirah, you will get through this! Until then just know that weโ€™re here if you need us. You have my support and ear anytime.
    Take care and stay as sweet as you are. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey Jirah! Well, you seem like you need a little happiness right now! You also needa know someone cares! Other people may not care for you, but Jesus will ALWAYS care for you and be there for you. Just talk to Him, He’ll be listening. Also, all the bloggers will be here for you! Well, I am… ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Reading encouraging/motivating quotes can also help! I always look for those when I’m stuck…. Hope these help.

  14. Thank you so much for the advice, Elsie! I’ll apply it to myself. โค I’ve said this to my friends already but I don’t know.. maybe I’m just so sad at the moment but I know this too shall pass. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. It’s okay and thanks so much for the advice! I’m always praying but these past few days it’s really been rough. I hope you’re okay too! Thanks so much for the kindness โค

  16. Same. Before I posted this it’s been 8 days already. Haha. Thank you so much, David. That’s so sweet to hear! I hope you’re having a lovely time and good luck with your writing. All the best for you!

  17. Ah I’m cryingโ€“ thanks so much, Angela! I feel like I haven’t posted anything good in this blog and I really really need a break. Thanks again. I’m always here for you too. I hope you’re having a lovely time! โค

  18. It’s okay, Cherylene. And yes, this too shall pass! I have talked to my friends about my problems but I don’t know, I don’t feel okay after saying them. I also don’t listen to music these past few weeks, and I don’t even write in my journal. I think it’s been a month since I last wrote in my journal. I don’t know, I feel like I’ve completely lost myself.

    And thank you so much. That’s so sweet to hear. Thank you. Thank you. And you take care as well!!

  19. Ah that’s a good message, Christie. I really feel like I’ve completely lost myself now and I really hope this will pass soon. I’ll wait and make a way for me to find myself again.

    Thank you so so much, Christie. I hope you’re having a lovely day!

  20. It’s alright! And I have my friends with me and I share with them my problems but it’s so weird there’s nothing happening. Maybe I just have to wait for this to pass.

    I hope you’re having a lovely time!

  21. Thank you so much, T.R. I’m so near to crying right now. I’ll apply these words to my heart and prepare to tell Him everything. Thank you so much again and I hope you’re having a lovely time!

  22. Thank you so much, Penelope! And yes, Jesus will always help! It’s my bad I haven’t told Him everything I’m feeling right now. And thanks so much, looking for motivational quotes was also in my routine.

    I hope you’re having a lovely day!

  23. It shall pass, so hold on. Lean periods are usually by good ones and I am sure there is one around the corner for you.

    I am well, Jirah ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for asking. xx

  24. xxalwaysdreamingxx

    Smile. Smiling will always make you feel better about the world. You can’t be sad when your smiling. Also, hugs help a lot. I know from personal experience ๐Ÿ˜€

  25. I’m so sorry to hear you like this. “I feel like I’ve completely lost myself” – honey I’ve been there and that is not a good feeling. Whatever is eating at you will continue to do so until you deal/treat/ face/ whatever it is. You can’t run from it because it is clearly mentally affecting you as well. The good news is that bubbly Jirah that I’ve come to appreciate is still there inside of you, she’s just probably hurt and confused. You need to dig deep and take control of this before it takes control over you. Try to find the lesson to be learnt from the experience and slowly bring that girl we all love back to the surface where she belongs. You CAN and you WILL overcome this. Have a blessed day. ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. Hey girl! I’m praying for you and am sorry you are feeling down. I’ve just started checking out your blog and can see that you are an awesome girl! I know you’ll definitely push through this. God will not leave you!

  27. Hi, Sarah!! Welcome to my blog (my world) haha. And thank you so much! I know God will never leave me. โค Thanks so much for dropping by and visiting!
