Hi, if you’re reading this, know that I am very proud of you for hanging in there and making it to today.
I know you probably thought that you wouldn’t be able to get through the day, much less the entire week, but you’re here anyway. I don’t think ‘congratulations’ is the right thing to say, considering that so many of us are barely making it out of every single day. I wish I could promise you that the immediate tomorrow would be better than yesterday was, but I cannot. I don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring.
But you need to know that you’re doing so well. It takes a lot of courage to make it to yet another day and do it again and again. I don’t know if tomorrow is going to be easier to deal with, but I can promise you that you’ve probably already dealt with worse. You are going to make it out of this, too. Remember all those times you thought you couldn’t handle what was going on? You survived that anyway.
You’re a lot stronger than you think and I hope you remind yourself that. I see a lot of you giving yourself a hard time for not being able to do more but you’re already doing so much better than you were yesterday just by acknowledging that there is always room for progress. But simply having the room to progress doesn’t mean that we all have the right headspace for it. So, it feels a little unfair to give yourself a hard time for things you have little to no control over.
There are always going to be moments that will leave you doubting your own capabilities. And you know what? That is very valid. You’re allowed moments of doubt as long as you remember that you have overcome a lot of things you previously thought you couldn’t.
You made it so far. You are capable of going further. Believe in yourself. Xx
