What gives you comfort in troubled times?
Mostly my husband gives me comfort when I’m struggling. When I don’t have faith in myself, he does. He is my biggest cheerleader.
Also, one thing that gives me comfort when I’m struggling is realizing that we humans are pretty darn resilient and tenacious. We have lived thousands of years through difficult times. Yes, people have died, but overall, humanity is still ever growing. I try to remember this and to tap into it when I’m dealing with difficulties.
Remembering I’m not alone helps, too. There are many people who are dealing with the same things I am. I may not speak to them about it and commiserate, but knowing they are out there helps.
