CoT:

It’s okay to not be okay. Many of us, especially during this particular time, are not okay. During these past months, there has been a lot taken away from us, including celebrations, memories, jobs, daily tasks, fun, and loved ones. There are many unknowns right now in this crazy world, and it’s okay to not have the answers. Everyone is trying their best. They are making decisions to try and protect their families and their futures. I want you all to know that it is alright to not have answers, it’s alright to be sad, it’s alright to be scared, and it’s alright to not be okay. The good thing is, during this time, is that we all have someone or a group of people that we can lean in on and count on at any time. You are not alone in this weird time in our lives, and you should never try and tackle it alone. Ask someone to help you. Ask someone to talk with you. Ask someone to love you. Use this group when you’re not okay. That’s how we get closer, and that’s how we grow not only as a group but as individuals. 

Love you all,

Bubbles
