May 31, 2016 I simply wrote, “I love you,” and posted it to facebook. Now it’s 730 days later, and I accomplished something I didn’t think I’d ever really do. An affirmation every day for two years. It was a weird habit to develop, but I really do think it helped me. I really think it kept me from going to deep into the pit.
This isn’t the end, but they may not come as regularly as they have been. For now I must turn to the second part of this project and see where it leads me.
Thank you for coming with me on this journey. I hope it’s help you even a little. I know it’s helped me.
You, dear one, have worked so hard. You’ve fought and struggled, but most importantly you’ve survived. You’ve made it another day. I hope you realize how incredible that is. That really is a very hard thing, and you’ve done it. You have every right to be proud of yourself. You are so worthy of the fight it took to get here. Now, deep breath. Let’s do it again.
Here’s what I know, friend. Those emotions you’re feeling? They’re valid. They may not feel rational. That’s okay. They may not seem logical. That’s okay too. It’s okay to be angry. It’s okay to be hurt. It’s okay to be sad. Friend, this is important. It’s also okay to be happy. It is okay to be happy. You are allowed to be happy. People may begrudge that happiness, but you’ve worked hard for it. Enjoy it while it’s here.
Hi, friend. Well done. You’ve made it to a new day. Yesterday is done and behind you. This one is fresh and clean and ready for you. You specifically. You exactly as you are. You’re beautifully suited for this one.
