How are you feeling?… It is okay not to feel okay!

I feel sick, I am not feeling good, I just want to lay down and sleep…

I am sad and angry, I need to cry and scream…

I feel deliriously happy, I am in love…


These are several feelings we encounter in life, and this is how we normally react when we face these feelings; they can be expressed both verbally and nonverbally, and sometimes, the way we respond to our emotions can seems rather spontaneous. For this reason, we may later start to regret the way we reacted, allowing our self-esteem and behaviour to be affected.

It is normal for feelings to change, and they can change in intensity. Probably all of us started to share many emotions during our adolescence; we were a bit moody for a while: happy one day and sad the next.


If you’ve got a promotion at work, or you’ve been appreciated for your projects at the university, everyone can see your smiles.


When you’re in love with someone, everyone can see how your eyes are glowing each time you hear their name, how you feel excited every time you see them, and how you run to hug them.


You can easily express your feelings, and you most certainly cannot hide them when you’re in a good mood; the whole world can feel your happiness and your positive vibes.


Everyone can see your deepened eyes and your lethargy when you’re sick because of a cold or a migraine pain.


And when you’re angry because of the annoying tasks your boss assigned you at work, everyone can feel your temper.


If you have a deadline to submit your project or you have failed an exam, everyone can feel your stressed vibes.


And the hardest time is when you lose a dear friend, a family member, or a partner, whether through death or due to changed pathways, every happy moment you had with this person disappears and everyone can see you heartbroken.
