You are OK right now. Whatever is going on, you are OK.
I’m not saying everything in your life is OK. I’m just saying that you, fundamentally, are OK.
You may not feel OK. You may think you cannot be OK until some future ambition is realized (graduation, promotion, financial status), but that is not the truth. The truth is you are OK right now.
Holding on to this idea that you can’t be OK until later has serious implications…
It means one of the most fundamental aspects of your security and sense-of-self is unavailable for the foreseeable future. It means you are waiting on some unsure future condition to establish your well being.
It means you don’t exist right now.
Is that anything to feel anxious or panic about? You bet it is!
Fortunately, you really are OK right now. You have only to realize and accept it.
