There’s a lot going on. It can feel overwhelming. On top of it all, you might have doubts or bad feelings about yourself or about things you have done in the past. It’s ok to have those feelings. It’s natural. Just try not to hold on to them even though there’s a strange comfort in their familiarity. Try not to let them take over even though some times they will. Acknowledge them and let them pass. And when they show up again, acknowledge them again and let them pass.
Life is complicated. And that extra layer of doubt only makes it more so. So peel it off when you can. And be kind to yourself. Be kind, be kind, be kind.
