Allow yourself to be unhappy

Wanting to get away from the unhappiness doesn’t make it better. It usually just prolongs the pain.

Instead, tell yourself that it’s OK to feel unhappy. Pause and allow yourself to feel it, to fully immerse in that unhappiness. Be curious about it, explore it, become intimate with it. It’s not pleasant, but it doesn’t kill you. In fact, it’s where the healing starts.

Being alive means feeling pain, feeling fear, feeling disconnected sometimes. Allow yourself to feel it, and imagine that this is what living feels like.

Find three happy things in this moment to be grateful for.

Even in our worst moments, we can find some joy in this not-small fact, that we are alive.
