When everything around you are heavy, scary, and full of sadness and misery, try not to resist them. Know that it’s okay to feel heavy, scared, sad, and miserable.
Acknowledge those feelings. Acknowledge them as the reality you are in right now. Give it the proper respect it deserves.
And while you are at it, breathe. Meditate. Contemplate.
Let It Sink In
I always say this to my friends who are going through a rough patch in their lives. And these days, it seems that we are collectively going through one in some form or the other.
It’s okay to let reality sink in, so long as you do not drown yourself in it.

Today Is Not Permanent, nor Are Todays’ Ills
If you spend all your energy on the negative, and the bad, and all the ills around you, then you are robbing yourself of what tomorrow can bring.
Give your feelings the acknowledgement it deserves, make peace with it, and move on. Embrace what the future holds. Imagine what a new day could bring.
Tomorrow Can Be a Good Day
Tomorrow can be a good day.
And you can create that tomorrow, today.
Today in your mind, tomorrow as a lived reality.
