Please, keep going. Don’t give up. All you have to do is get through today. Twenty-four hours. 1,440 minutes. That’s all you need to do right now.
Breathe. Shower. Brush your teeth. Change out of your pajamas. Get something done. It doesn’t matter how small it is.
When you feel like the world is too overwhelming, you have to stop being so hard on yourself. Stop pushing yourself. Stop assuming that you aren’t accomplishing anything worthwhile.
Today doesn’t have to be the day you find your forever person or land your dream job or finish the project you have started. Today doesn’t have to be the day that you turn your entire life around.
Today is just another day you have to make it through.
You shouldn’t be mad at yourself for going through this. You should be proud of yourself for every new hour you fight, for every new day you survive. Because sometimes that’s the hardest thing you will ever have to do.
So, keep making it until tomorrow. Every single day, that should be your goal. Make it until tomorrow. And the next tomorrow. And the next. And the next.
Eventually, you’ll be able to add more goals to your list. Make it until tomorrow and meet your friends for dinner. Make it until tomorrow and start doing something you loved again. Make it until tomorrow and buy a plane ticket across the country.
One day, living will be easier. But even once that happens, even once you reach a good place in your life, there will be still days when you suffer from setbacks. There will still be days when you have to remind yourself that all you have to do is make it until tomorrow.
