Warrior, you really have come so very far. You’ve conquered so much. You’ve accomplished a great deal. Sometimes that’s hard to see in the moment. Sometimes that’s hard to wrap your head around. That’s okay, I promise. Today, you don’t have to look at the whole picture, if you can’t handle it. So let’s just look at all of those tiny joys. That new podcast you love, the way flowers are starting to sprout from the ground, that new dish you tried to make, whatever tiny things are bringing you joy are just as valid as the amazing and huge accomplishments that you’ve made.
Friend, every day won’t be easy, and I’m sorry. I wish they could be. You’re strong though. You made it through the last hard day, and you’ll make it through the next. One day out of the thousands that you’ll see? You can handle this one day. You can do this.
Some days are harder than others. I’m sorry for that. Know that you are beautifully suited for this exact moment to handle it. It may not be easy, but you’re strong and capable. It may not be fun, but every moment until now has prepared you for it. You can do this day. You’ve already done so many. You can do this one too.
Trust yourself. Only you know what will work best for you. Only you understand what you need. Only you know how you need to handle things. You know what you’re doing. Trust yourself, even if no one else understands.
Look, you can only do so much. That’s okay. That’s healthy. You don’t have to make yourself do more than you can handle. Take your time. Take care of yourself. It’s okay that you understand and know your limits. Value them, balance them. You are in control.
Okay, friend. Deep breath. This is just one moment. Breathe through it. It will pass. It is not your whole life. It is not in control of you. Breathe through this one. Let it build you up. Become stronger. You can handle this one moment. In a few seconds, there will be another completely different moment. You can do this.
Okay, you can do this. People are people, and the only one you have any say over is you. Be the best you possible. Do not let the mindsets of others impact your own. You can do this. You are capable. You can handle this. You are in control of your mind and body. You can do this.
