You are doing the best you can
This week I felt lost and yesterday it was mostly apathy and disinterest.
I was concerned – is this my Depression acting up?
Being encouraged by my Etsy shop, I’m trying to start a label selling quote magnets as a small local business.
It has not gone on that well. A lot of the time I’ve been crippled by fear of failure and the pointlessness of it all. (Though I’ve got to give myself a pat on the back because I managed to meet a buyer of a local chain in Jan, though he has been slow on follow up – which also contributes to my paralysing fear and sense of worthlessness.)
Today as I rushed to the CoDA meeting, a thought flashed across my mind:
You are doing the best you can.
This is definitely not from me, because it’s not my first instinct to reassure myself. I figured this was Higher Power stuff…! Divinely inspired.
I think my Higher Power speaks to me in quotes. I read so many on IG daily, and I store them here; it’s like I have my personal bag of quotes! So my HP pulled out one to comfort me.
I’ve not accepted it yet though; I always am the hardest on myself, and think my best is never good enough.
Nonetheless the message I got was: even with feeling lost, apathetic, disinterested… this is the best I can manage for now. I am doing the best I can.
