I saw this quote and shared it. I love sharing quotes that really hit home for me. This one however, hit real deep.
I never give myself grace, ever. My husband says I am so hard on everyone but I am hardest on myself. I don’t know why I am like that. My dad always gave me tough love (he was in the military for 20+ years). Maybe it’s just my DNA and who I am. I honestly have no idea but I know that I have always been this way.
I never just allow myself to half ass something and not be upset with myself. I am not perfect but when I mess up or am lazy (because everyone is at times) I just beat myself up and I hate that.
I love this quote so much. As I get older, I realize that life is so hard. Give yourself grace. The day to day of life is hard but then you have to add death, childbirth, friends ships, family, work, feelings, struggles, etc.
Just remember this, whenever you’re feeling down or discouraged… breathe. You’ve powered through so many times. You’ve picked yourself up when you’re feeling the most down you’ve ever felt. Now, you’re sitting here in the moment struggling more than ever- love yourself a little extra. You’ve pushed through so many times. This time, just sit back and give yourself some grace. You deserve it.
I talked on the phone with a friend yesterday. She lost her daughter this year to breast cancer. She told me she just feels like time is passing and it’s not getting any easier. She has a to do list a mile long. She just feels like she’s drowning.
Accept that this is just a season of life and this too shall pass. Yes, it’s going to be hard. Allow yourself to take the time and be sad. Allow yourself to feel joy in things you used to feel joy doing. Delegate tasks to help thin out that to do list to help with your mental health.
Life is hard. It really is. Lean on those you love and stay positive.
