Although… Could butter bring us better?

I think we all feel better when someone butters us up, tells us what we often can’t see–that we can, that we do, that we will.

So, here’s a large plate of butter for you:

You can do this because you have been doing this. Difficult days will come. You will overcome these difficult days and, as you do, you will collect a perspective that takes away the intensity of future difficult days. This perspective means that the difficulty no long spans across days but rather lasts for moments.

Life can be difficult. You know better how to manage the challenges to make it the other side. You can. You do. You will.

You are better.

There’s your well-deserved pat of butter.
