"I should be over it by now.
I shouldn’t have brought this on myself.
I should be back in the game.

Listen Here to hear Desire Map author, Danielle Laporte, read a beautiful sentiment on how to use gentleness to pull you through when you're beating yourself up for being sad again. Because here's the thing, you're allowed to be sad. You're allowed to be hurt. You're allowed to feel whatever feels authentic, right now.
You can't stay in sad town, but you're allowed to stay there for a little while and maybe visit every now and again when a little extra self love and kindness is all you need.
