At the worst of times, this will sound like one of those flip comments like “get over yourself”. You just can’t see how you can achieve this as the problem just seems too big to get through.

However just see if you can find one tiny thing within the big problem that you think you can break through, even if it is getting out of the bed in the morning.

Celebrate your achievement. You have started to break through. One small step at a time. Remind yourself you are strong.

How many others can endure what you are enduring. Remember you have courage. You are very brave.
