“You do not need to make yourself feel worse by beating yourself up for not being happier just because other people have it worse than you.”

These words from the inimitable Philippa Perry really struck a cord. In the article, Philippa talks about creating art from any negative feelings; anyone who knows me will understand that art isn’t my outlet, but that’s by-the-by.

For me, Philippa’s words mean it’s ok to be ok.

If you’re ok, look around, enjoy the view and, if you can, use your ok to help someone who might not be.
