It’s okay, not to be okay

There are some people who always present themselves like they have it all together. You know like those people who seem like they have some type of super power because they do everything and will still smile at the end of the day. It may be natural for you to not notice how much you are taking on, and everything may feel like it is coming toward you at once.

How To Achieve A New Body
