" I've seen better days, but I've also seen worse. I don't have everything I want but I do have all i need. I woke up with some aches and pains, but I woke up. My life may not be perfect, but i am blessed"
This reminds me of Dr Brene Brown's saying, "shame cannot survive being talked about; the antidote to shame is empathy" Once we talk about it with someone - we no longer feel shame. Such a key life lesson. (Wonder if that's true or not)
