You are not alone

We carry our burdens bravely, though we are not meant to walk alone. Even the strongest need support and wisdom; we need encouragement to identify and live according to the values we cherish. Sometimes, we need a balance of acceptance of who we are, as we are, and how to challenge ourselves to grow into our best and whole selves.
