Publisher's Summary

What if I told you it is okay not to be okay? And that pushing yourself toward positivity is not always the best thing for your healing?
I know what it's like to feel guilty or weird for feeling "bad" emotions, especially with all the pressure to be positive all the time. That's why this self-care and self-expression resource explores the radical idea of being okay with not being okay. There is no guilt or shame in feeling angry, resentful, frustrated, greedy, offended, jealous, defeated, betrayed, sad, or any other feeling within our massive emotional spectrum. Avoiding your feelings is...futile. You will always come back to yourself.
Listen to this audiobook to learn about facing and even embracing painful emotions as part of a healthy self-care process. If you are dealing with mental health issues that do not require medication but instead call for a deeper understanding of what emotional wellness means for you, this audiobook can help. This audiobook provides strategies and soulwork to help you be all right with feeling your feelings and navigating situations where people keep trying to rush you through to the other side of your pain. It's the exact opposite of the "show up and smile no matter what" logic.
Use the recommendations and explanations in this audiobook to focus on self-compassion, but be forewarned - this is not a feel-good audiobook. Instead it's meant to remind you how to be there for yourself, even if you have to do it alone. Buy this audiobook and use it to nurture an unapologetic acceptance of your emotional process.
