“I am doing okay” doesn’t mean life is perfect. It means I still have days when I feel empty inside, but I manage to fill my mind with positive thoughts to overcome it. It means sadness is still around the corner waiting for me to let my guard down again, but whether I let it embrace me once more, I will have my ways of getting through it. It means there are still instances when I feel so messed up, but I tend to pause, these days, for a while, breathe, and rearrange things inside my head. It means I am happy, but it doesn’t mean I no longer have such lonesome nights—I just learnt how to face it properly.

I am doing okay. I hope you are, too.
