12 Affirmations + Truths That Are Not Extractive and Do Not Bypass

1. While I most likely cannot be whoever I want, I can do something that weaves my interests with my abilities, to the best of my circumstances.

5. Appreciation is a habit I cultivate by noticing beauty found in humans and more-than-humans.

6. Love is what I give myself, not what I wait for from others.

7. Struggle will always be part of life, so it’s not about finding ways to ‘overcome’ them. Instead, I am learning how to respectfully live with Struggle as my roommate.
