A dear friend of mine is having what she describes as a “craptastic year.” She sporadically sends me text messages about the messiness of her life and her messy feelings about it.
And in response, I SEND HER messages OF LOVE AND ACCEPTANCE.
Because life is messy. And largely uncontrollable. And sometimes it’s just an absolute shit-show.
And however we feel about it is OK. And maybe what is happening in our life is undesirable, but It's still OK. Or maybe it’s completely fucking unacceptable, but it’s still happening either way.
What if we could find a way to be gentle and patient with ourselves - just as we are with our best friends?
This week of 'It's OK' messages are reminders to me and my friend to do just that.
