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.
No one has it 100% together, but most people only post when they do. So remember that that “perfect” person you idolize (or maybe loathe), is probably not so perfect after all.
There are so many shades of gray in between black and white, so don’t just limit yourself to the two colors.
Keep putting one foot in front of the other. You’ll get where you need to be when you’re ready.
The world is a scary and unpredictable place. Always has been, and most likely always will be. But it’s not up to you to carry the weight of the world. No one person can do that.
Most people are just figuring it out as they go along. We all make mistakes and learn from them. Or we have great successes and learn from them as well.
So take some comfort in knowing that you’re not the only one winging it. Life is weird. And we’re all still learning.
Other people are fighting some of the same battles as you. We’re all trying to make sense of our lives and our surroundings. This is the human condition. And there are people who actually do understand precisely what you are going through, but that doesn’t make it any less painful or less scary.
