Baby girl, it’s okay

It’s okay. It’s okay to sit with the pain of feeling like you were duped. It’s okay to have loved hard and open. It’s okay to have been wrong when it felt right. It’s okay to have questions. It’s okay to question others. It’s okay to stand up for yourself. It doesn’t mean you snapped when you speak your truth to power. It’s okay to fall in and say yes. It’s okay to stop and say no. It’s okay to love and lose. It’s okay to decide that love is not your priority. Its okay to change your mind. It’s okay to disagree. it’s okay to set boundaries. It’s okay to be accountable. It’s okay to hold others accountable for their behavior. It’s okay to call out a lie.  Its okay to stick with it long after others have gone on. It’s okay to be wrong. It’s okay to express your hurt. Its okay to learn who not to express your hurt to. It’s okay to re-evaluate. It’s okay to have faith when when there is no evidence to support what you believe. It’s okay to love hardest and first. It’s okay to let someone love on you. It’s okay to not know. It’s okay to be sure. It’s okay to try and fail and try again. It’s okay to decide you dont want to fail anymore. It’s okay to take risks. It’s okay to cling to safe spaces. It’s okay to be silent. It’s okay to be loud. It’s okay be sure. It’s okay to walk away from the unsure. It’s okay to be vulnerable. It’s okay to be afraid. It’s okay to be brave. It’s okay to be misunderstood. It’s okay to be a square peg in the land of round holes.

Whatever it is and however it goes, baby girl, it’s okay. Walk in your truth. Reclaim your dignity. Fight for yourself. It’s okay.
