The Life Lessons I Learned From “It’s Okay Not to Be Okay”

One of the few dramas to directly address mental health is “It’s Okay to Not Be Okay.” Although you could consider it as just another romantic Korean drama, it is actually much more than that. It features Seo Ye-ji as Ko Mun-yeong and Kim Soo-hyun as Moon Gang-tae, which has brought attention to a variety of concerns. Here are a few life lessons I learned from watching “It’s Okay Not to Be Okay.”

Avoid impulsive decisions

Mun-yeong struggles with emotional self-control and makes rash decisions. In one episode, Gang-tae tells her how to count to three and gives herself a butterfly hug to help her stay calm and stop making snap decisions. Later episodes have shown that this works.

Mun-yeong’s hastiness in the early episodes cost her company money and damaged her reputation, as we learned through the show. Being able to regulate oneself is difficult in life, even if it’s simple to allow emotions to cloud our judgment.

Deal with your trauma

It can be frightening to confront your trauma. However, one cannot begin healing until they have dealt with their past trauma. The initial discomfort will hurt, but once it passes, you’ll feel more at ease. Don’t be scared to ask for professional assistance if you need it.

It’s okay to not be okay

According to the title itself, it’s actually okay to not be okay. Everybody struggles, and it’s acceptable to struggle. It’s okay to acknowledge that you need assistance; in fact, it’s the first step towards healing and becoming better.
