I don't have one to contribute, because right now my thought process is more like, "she sucks!"
I guess the one I have used when my anxiety ramps up is one that my sister told me, which is, " that feeling is just adrenaline in the body. It will pass."
The only think I can think to contribute is:
NO: Our dreams are dead.
YES: This is my chance to dream big!
Patience, patience, patience.
I am learning to rely on myself.
I have my health.
My kids are awesome
Onward and upward
except in my case it was:
NO:He chose her over me
YES:I abandoned ship after realizing I was on a share d*ck program and she was the only one who was willing to put up with him. She can keep that mess! I deserve better!
Recently, I heard a song that includes a line "like a bird I sing cause you have given me the most beautiful set of wings".
It was a breakthrough moment for me because I really realized that it's true! I can do anything and go anywhere, It's all up to me- it is the most exquisite feeling! Makes my soul sing when I repeat it to myself
