What’s the problem?
July 2, 2019

“Advice is what you ask for when you know the answer but wish you didn’t.”

Ever heard that? Can you think of another sentence that packs more wisdom?

If you’re anything like me, you know what to do. You just don’t want to do it.

There’s something so freeing about (1) admitting that, (2) doing it anyway, and (3) realizing the dreading was worse than the doing.

But what if the dreading isn’t worse than the doing? What if the doing is really, really difficult and you can’t imagine surviving it?

Take lots of breaks. Let yourself grieve. Cry your eyes out if that’s your style. Sometimes the only way to feel better is to let yourself feel even worse.
