There is no rule that says you need to be happy today. However you are feeling is okay. It’s okay if you’re not in the holiday spirit. Take care of yourself today.
Have you ever felt like nothing really matters? Like nothing you do will ever make a difference and your life doesn’t mean anything? That everything is completely random and life is cruel and good people don’t get what they deserve?
So whether it’s from the latest terrorist attack, a natural disaster, a depressive episode, or a personal situation, the last thing on your mind is eating. When nothing matters, why should you bother nourishing yourself?
There are so many shades of gray in between black and white, so don’t just limit yourself to the two colors.
In addition to focusing on all the work we need to get done, all the chores we still need to do, and all the people we need to reach out to, why not pay attention to the little things as well?
To anyone struggling with anxiety right now: I know right now you feel like you’re going to die. I know you can’t imagine that your heart is going to still beat after this. But it will.
In case no one has told you lately, you’re doing a really great job.
