Dear Self,

There are some things that I know to be true.

Just keep moving forwards, even if the step is tiny, take it.

When I’ve had very little don’t take any of my opinions seriously. Seriously. Get some sleep and then I’m allowed to reassess.

My friendships are deeper and stronger than I ever let myself believe. Hold onto that when the ocean gets rough. Because that’s a lifeline. Focusing on the undermining conversation I’m having with myself about it all is like wondering why the storm won’t rescue me.

This shall pass. Be kind and gentle as the rough bit moves through. It really will pass. Really. It will.

I know these things to be true. Writing them down and remembering them when it is a bit rough is very useful.

Love

Luke
