A Reminder for Terrible Days

You can have a really bad day while still acknowledging that you have a mostly wonderful life. You can even have a long string of really bad days and still know that you have a blessed life.

But when you’re having a terrible day, the last thing you want to do is remember the way you feel when you’re not having a terrible day.

You are allowed to feel miserable. You are allowed to feel like everything is going wrong. And you don’t need to be saved from those feelings. You don’t need anyone telling you that you shouldn’t feel that way. All you really need is the time and space to feel them, and then to know that there’s a chance you won’t feel that way the next day.
That’s all anyone needs.
