✨You can feel immense gratitude and still feel frustrated when things aren't going according to plan.
✨You can learn new systems of thought while simultaneously unlearning ones that no longer are valid.
✨You can grow into a better person but also make mistakes along the way.
✨You can feel confident in who you are but also feel anxious about things you can't control.
The things that seem the most contradictory CAN coexist. Feelings, emotions, and behaviors are not all or nothing. They're complex and hard to understand at times, which is another reason why extending self compassion is SO important❤️
