I thought I had through the hardest time in my life after I lost my dad but this is harder. That loss I will always carry with me & it was hard; this is a whole other level.
Everything has caught up with me: all the years watching my dad fight, dealing with my own illness, my mom’s fight, and all those past traumas have affected me, changed me.
Because of those changes, I now have a larger battle of understanding bad patterns that need to change, medical treatment and awareness I need to accomplish, & so much more.
Rachel Hollis beautifully reminded me that this fight is important for the I want to have in the future but also validated that it’s hard as jack.
So just be nicer to everyone - you never know what battle they are in.
