Today a teenage patient went through a bad day. She has done some steps forward in her progress. But today, today she was in a rut. Today she didnt feel like she was improving. I told her that she has to push through today. That when she is at her lowest, she has to push even harder through it.
Sometimes you just want to put everything down and wish life will pause itself. No, the stars still shines, all lights flicker out and when you open your eyes, the sun will come out again. And you, you still need to push through it.
And now, I have to echo my own words to her, back to myself. Just gotta push through it. Sleep tight and tomorrow will be another day again.
