Life’s challenges

During hard stressful situations, we don’t always handle everything in a perfect way. The important thing is that we do the best we can to get through it. So why do we look back on these situations and critique the way we handled things?

This past week my boss went through some terrible stuff. As someone who was there for her, I can say firsthand she was amazingly strong. She did what needed to be done, and moved on to the next hard thing. Yet, when talking to her about this, she told me she didn’t feel she had handled things well.

We as people need to start giving ourselves more credit. When you get through hard things, be kind to yourself. Celebrate your strength. Be gentle with yourself. Learn from the experience, and keep moving forward.
