The best part is the WEEE.
Have you read Glennon Doyle’s book? I don’t remember what it was called and I didn’t read the whole thing. But I got one shining golden nugget from it before I lost interest, and that was her story about her affirmation:
We can do hard things.
The genius of this affirmation is the WE. Because hardship, abuse, loss, depression… all those dark mental places will tell you that you are alone. It’s a big fat lie, and if you can remember to tell yourself that “WE can do hard things, you’ll remember that you’re not alone.
You’re never alone. If you look around and don’t see a person, someone who cares and loves you is a text, a phone call, a Whats app away. You’re never alone. Even if you think “yeah, but they’re too busy / it’s been too long / it would be weird” WE can do hard things, like reach out to each other.
You’re never alone. We can find each other in dark. We can make peace with ourselves and each other. We can change our landscape. We can do the things that bring us joy. And we can help each other do it too. Because WE love and support each other.
Right. Now we’re going to have a fantastic day!
