When we suffer, many of us tend to suffer alone, in silence. We are ashamed or afraid to speak out.

The fact is, sometimes we’re just not okay, and it’s okay to not be okay. And, yet, if there’s a key to opening that door, as uncomfortable as opening it might be, that key is speaking up, speaking out, and saying to yourself, “I’m not okay right now." 

It’s okay to ask for help. It’s always okay.

I hope within the resources listed here, you find something useful.
