On the hard days do one very important thing for me, be gentle with yourself.
These days will come and they will try to rip your self esteem, peace, joy, wholeness, even your breakthrough to shreds. These days will come and make you feel suffocated, hopeless, broken, exhausted, miserable, unworthy… Don’t give in.
It is on the hardest days that you have to choose to love yourself, love the process of healing you are in. Love the wounds, the scars, the shakiness of your breath. Loving yourself on the good days is easy, but what matters most in healing is loving yourself when it’s the most difficult. When it hurts. When you feel like you can’t. When you want to give up because the voice inside of your head tells you there is no other path for your life.
Don’t listen. Don’t back down. Don’t give in. You have come this far and you my love will go even farther. Just get through today. Just hold on till tomorrow. Tomorrow is a gift and I want you to be there to receive it.
The hard day ends, and the next day is undecided. No matter how many hard days come each and every one of them will come to an end. Let that truth give you the hope to keep going.
Hang in there, and please my dear be gentle with yourself.
You are precious,
