I’ve always been a high energy kinda guy and when I’m at all a little on the lower side people’s first thing is to ask if something is wrong. Most of the time, it’s just me being introspective or genuinely low energy. But there are other times where I’m not okay. My mind might be full of life happenings or recent current events. I see it a lot where people ask how you are and the first reaction is to say “I’m good.” It’s almost like we’re afraid no one really wants to listen to the answer “I’m not doing well” because often times this question isn’t asked sincerely. It’s up to you to speak your truth and to say what you’re honestly feeling. Not being okay is completely okay. And it’s also completely okay to let people know that you’re not okay when they ask how you’re doing. We all have our ups and downs so give yourself full permission to have a not so great day and share about it. Remember when the roles are reversed to be prepared to listen to others truth as you’d want to be listened to. I like to say “If you don’t wanna know the answer, don’t ask the question.” Give yourself a break. Have compassion with yourself and with others. So… how are you doing?
See you on the mat. Much love and good vibes.
