Sometimes things look impossible. Like there's no way out, no possibility of change, no sliver lining. And the worst possible thing you could hear is "It'll get better", because deep down you somehow know it won't.
Getting stuck in a downward spiral is easy and the only way out is using your will power to try and see something good and attainable and go for it.
If what you're doing isn't working, try something else.
And if what you're telling yourself you'd never tolerate from a friend, stop saying it. Be a smart mouse and give yourself a treat.
Love to all (far and near),
