I Know I'll Be Okay
I think there are two groups of people out there when something bad happens.
Some need to be consoled and the others need a game plan.
I fall into the second group but my friends are mostly in the first group.
This makes it hard when something disrupts my life. I want and need distraction and/or a game plan from my friends. I want to either have fun or talk about HOW to move on. Not to say I ignore my feelings. I prefer to sit in them on my own so when I'm reaching out to friends I'm looking for companionship more than consoling.
Instead I find a lot of my friends assuring me that I "will be okay". I still love these words and the fact that they care enough to console me in the way they feel best. But also, it leaves me feeling misunderstood.
I feel like I'm the only one who knows life will continue on whether I'm okay or not. That is something I can count on and don't doubt. What I want to know is how do I continue on with the world? How should I put one foot in front of the other? How should I interact further with the problem? What do I do?
These are the questions I need answered and maybe they're too much. Maybe that's why I feel the need for them to be answered and also why they're going unanswered.
Sometimes, only time can tell and your intuition can help guide you.
My message is that if you feel misunderstood like me, just accept your friends' love. They are giving you their best. Try to talk it out if you can, but when it comes down to it, your intuition should guide you down the right path.
The one thing we can't deny is, the world will keep turning and you will always be okay.
