It's Okay That It's Not Okay
"It’s Okay That It’s Not Okay" is an autobiographical story about what it feels like when strong repressed emotions finally catch up to you and make themselves heard. Our narrator has to reckon with how she’s used her go-go-go workaholism as a coping mechanism to avoid grief. The story invites us to consider what it might take in our day and age to actually stop, take a break, catch our breaths, and feel some feelings. It’s a story about knowing that we can survive our hardest emotions because those feelings are what make us more human and more whole.
The story is both timely and timeless.
