I constantly try to remind myself that it’s okay to be selfish.
It’s okay to shut myself in my room, to want to have extra time to myself.
It’s okay to reject social outings in favour of quiet activities.
It’s okay to have a cry, to ask for someone’s immediate support.
As long as I’m taking care of my mental health, I’m loving myself and I’m working on myself, anything is okay.
