#LHHATL Moments When It's Okay To Not Be Okay

"It's okay to not be okay." Ariane Davis seems to be the voice of reason when it comes to all the drama MiMi and Stevie J. create between each other.

In the latest episode MiMi was desperately trying to stay strong right after losing her last living parent. Her father fell ill and died in the hospital. In the midst of the tragedy, all focus was on the sex tape she and Niko profited off of. After realizing how much pain MiMi must be in, Ariane stepped in and talked with her. They cried and Ariane let her know that it is okay to not be okay. You can't always be happy and you have good reasons to not be happy sometimes. That was one of those times.

Love and Hip Hop Atlanta has gotten so crazy that there are a countless amount of moments where none of the women should have not been okay. Let's just stick with this week's episode.
Obviously Kalenna was waiting for these episodes to air before announcing her pregnancy, but clearly it's okay for her to be worried about how a new child is going to affect her life. Her husband has nine children in all, there was mold in their house, and she still has to put her all in her music career.

It's okay for Erica Dixon to stress over her new career idea. I'm glad she's not worried about Scrappy or the broke model she was dating. Instead Erica seems to have her mind where it needs to be. That is making herself a better person.

It's also okay to be angry for a friend. So the drama between Yung Joc and Karlie Redd is stupid. She's complaining about him cheating on her, but he's a married man still. Yeah, Yung Joc never divorced his wife. However, the fact that Erica was willing to get angry and stand by her side is what friendship is all about. I wish more people understood this. When your friend is angry, it's okay to get angry along with them. When your friend is happy, it's okay to share in their happiness.

I actually hate it when people tell me to be strong during moments where the most devastating shit just happened. No, sometimes I just want to fall the fuck apart. Sometimes I just want to lay in the bed for days and everyone that matters be fine with it. After all, life isn't always about staying strong. Sometimes it's about embracing our own weaknesses.
