Don’t Give Up Yet.
Give yourself credit for still being here, for still showing up in the world, every day, no matter what the world throws at you, you’re still here.
It’s so easy to feel inadequate right now. To feel like you’re not doing what you’re supposed to be doing. To feel like you’re not doing enough. Like you aren’t enough. Just generally feel bad about yourself.
But you need to give yourself more credit. This sh*t’s hard. Really hard.
No matter how young or old you are, you’re dealing with an insane amount of sh*t right now.
And it sucks. A lot.
