It’s Ok Not To Be Ok

Good Morning WordPress.

If you’re struggling today, then please be brave and speak to someone about it.

Don’t be ashamed. Protect your mental health. It’s your wealth.

We are Stephen and Fionnuala and this is our story. We live in Northern Ireland, have been married for 15 years and have three kids - Adam, Hannah and Rebecca. We hope that our story will inspire and encourage others. We have walked a rocky road yet here we are today, together and stronger than ever. We are far from perfect and our faith has been battered and bruised. But an untested faith is a pointless faith. Just as a fractured faith is better than none at all. We hope you enjoy the blog.

  1. It is hard for me to talk to someone about mental struggles because I worry it will come across as complaining, or that I will be imposing myself and my problems on someone who probably has enough problems of their own to cope with and I am afraid of being a burden or damaging relationships by being too needy. I often just write, then, which is also good but I think being able to share in the context of a relationship, without the guilt or worry, would be really really nice.

    1. Share your problems with loved ones as thas what relationships are for.not only to share happiness but also be a part of the sorrows and guide us through turbulent times..writing surely is the next best thing…u can share your thoughts with wp family also as m sure all will be there to support u without being judgemental..Tc. god bless

    2. I meant to say this here: I let my husband or other family members read my blogs or journal entries because I’m horrible about verbalizing (my husband more so my journals).

  2. Sometimes this is difficult to do because as one person above said you don’t want to come across as needy or a burden. I agree that writing is a good outlet for me which is why nobody in my friends and family know about my blog except my husband because I pretty much tell him everything.

    Also checking in that YOU are doing okay today my friend 🙂 Are you?

  3. I have had a crappy week at work and have struggled with stress which makes me irritable, angry and almost tearful. I have been running a lot recently and today went and ran 5 mile with some of my fav songs pumping into my head to motivate me. Took my mind off a few things and I felt much better putting things into perspective. Think your post was meant to be today. Ian

  4. Being ok is not a goal necessarily. Being satisfied is a goal we should attain to. Challenging ourselves to be calm is a good goal. Being envious is something to avoid.
    Not being ok can be so many things — can we switch that feeling easily? No, but it does happen — it happened for me about 6 weeks ago. I didn’t flip the switch from depression to mania but somewhere by some miraculous mind warp, I was in a new mindset.
    New decisions regarding my activities were made that have had a major impact in my life.
    There is so much more to tell.
    But not here and not now.
    May God bless you all!!

  5. I’m processing through something right now, and I’m sad. Deeply, truly, incredibly sad. I have talked to someone about it, but I’m not sure where to go or what to do. Right now it’s just been a moment of realization. Of recognizing actions and absorbing feelings. And “sadness” is truly the best term to encompass this process.
