The quote is right but one thing it fails to say is...even if this person is yourself.
Have you ever been discouraged with your own growth? with your own progress? with your own healing? Have you ever been discouraged?
Truth is? Healing, recovery, learning to cope and even to manage a hurting life...takes time! and there will be days when you're moving smoothly and there will be others when you're flat on your butt! And you may even find you stay on your butt for a few days...that's okay! believe it or not...that's still progress. It may be slow, it may be hard to see...but every time you get back up again? well...that's progress! So no matter how slow you may seem to be going some days...DON'T ever discourage yourself. NOPE! DON'T do it!
We're all doing our best and we need to support, encourage and empower one another...and we also need to do this for ourselves. So never discourage anyone who is making continual progress no matter how slow...and that includes yourself!
be gentle with you okay? you are only human
