It’s ok not to be ok

I am finding that people are always trying to encourage positivity and not really allowing room for when someone just wants to say I hate my stoma and what it has done to my life. You don’t always have to rescue me or make me feel better. What would make me feel better would be for people just to listen and allow space for all feelings good or bad. We all have bad days. Please allow them and don’t deny your feelings. It’s ok not to be ok. Repressed feelings will come out in some other way, sometimes in anger.
