Daily Mom Hug | Not a Competition
Your existence is valid.
Good morning, fam! Today let’s talk about normalizing that life is not a competition.
Pain? Not a competition.
Trauma? Not a competition.
Bad days? Not a competition.
Your feelings, your trauma, your pain, your bad days are valid. Regardless of the fact that, yes, there’s probably somebody out there who has it worse. Because there will always be someone who has it worse.
However, that does not trivialize what you’re going through, and you need to remember that.
You are allowed to feel your big feels.
You’re allowed to mourn changes and loss (and loss doesn’t necessarily mean death, fam).
You are under no obligation to minimize yourself for the comfort of others. Period.
So, the next time someone tells you, “Somebody has it worse. You should be grateful,” you punch them in the face! (It’s a joke, folks!)
I mean, no, bad mom, we don’t punch them in the face.
We tell them to fuck off.
