Nobody is ever fine. For the record.
Zero people are fine.
So it’s okay if you’re not.
Because of course you’re not.
Fine is a boring made-up plateau that people pretend to inhabit when things are actually not at all fine.
Whatever you are feeling on the spectrum of utterly devastated to impossibly overjoyed is absolutely normal and okay at any point in time. You are allowed to be better than fine and not better than fine. You have permission to feel really crappy and to feel really great. And you have the freedom to say out loud that you are happy, that you are scared, that you are uncertain, that you are low, that you are proud, that you are emotional, that you are stoic, that you are concerned, that are doubting yourself, that you are strong.
So you are not fine.
You are all the easy and hard things, the good and bad things on the spectrum of feelings.
And it’s definitely not fine.
