Friend, you have come so far. I’m sorry for the struggle and pain and heartache you’ve had to overcome just to get to another day. There are many people in the world, there are many people in your life who will never have to understand what that feels like. Nonetheless, friend, you are here for another day. Embrace it. You can conquer this too.
You are relentless. You continue. You struggle. You succeed. You fail. You continue. You try and try. You pick yourself up and start again. You’ve done it over and over. Today is no different. It is just another day. You can do this one.
Friend, you are valid. Your pains are valid. Your struggles are valid. Your goals are valid. So are those of people around you. We’re in this together. Listen to each other. Support each other, not just in successes. Support each other when it’s uncomfortable, when you don’t fully understand. Support isn’t about how it benefits you. Support is taking a step back from yourself to help someone else. It’s okay to let people in.
Hey, dear one, you’re doing great. Worn, tired, drained, empty. That’s okay. You know what? You’re still here, and that’s incredible. You continue. You work, and you move. You push, and you struggle. It’s beautiful. Keep it up. Just remember to take care of yourself.
Every day will not be flawless. Many will have struggles. Remarkably, you continue. Some days may feel impossible. There may be a storm outside or in your head or in your heart. It will calm. It always does. Breathe slowly. Focus on tiny victories. Don’t be overwhelmed by a heart storm. You will come out stronger. I’m sorry you have to go through it to get there. I believe in you.
