You are strong. You are. You’re stronger than you realize. You’re using strength right now that you don’t even notice. You continue to move and breathe and push and try, and that strength is carrying you beautifully. It is okay to be strong, and it is okay to hurt. Those two things can work together. You are strong.
Today, make a choice. Choose to, as best as your heart and mind are able, to love and be kind and understanding. We’re all in this together, so make the choice to give the things into the world that you also need.
Friend, you are loved. You are not alone. You are a part of the whole. We are all in this together, every single one. Even when you are on your own, I promise, you are not alone. You are with us all, and I’m so glad.
Friend, you are not alone. No one is. We’re all in this mess together, every one of us with victories and defeats. Every one of us with hurts and joys. We’re all here. You are not alone. Even when it feels lonely, you’re not alone.
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.
