Default Hope it helps others

Some days are shit. And sometimes you get a bunch of them in a row. And sometimes it gets too much, and there is crying and gnashing of teeth.

I saw my psychologist. I said "I'm not coping very well".

She said:

What kind of person deals with this without getting upset?

The only way through it is through it - just keep going.

This is what coping looks like.

Shared in the hope it may help others. The last has become a very comforting self talk... I'm not failing - this is what coping looks like.
