I came across this phrase on Facebook just this week. And it fits so perfectly with what I’m going through, that I decided to turn it into a nice little reminder to display on the screen of my phone, computer and iPad, and now I’m sharing it with all of you.
Because every one of us has had to unfuck oneself at some point. Fight the dementor. Slay the dragon. Name it as you will, but the idea is that you have to face a hell of a fight, with none other than yourself.
And I don’t know about you, but it comforts me to know that I’m not alone, that somewhere out there, there are people fighting their own battles to become a better version of themselves. And suddenly, I feel empowered. I don’t feel weak anymore because we’re an army. We don’t know each other, but we are experiencing a similar struggle, and I like to think that every one of us, by working on ourselves, are planting a seed for a better world.
