Are you doing your best?

In the midst of this political nightmare, I needed this reminder.

When reading posts on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Tumblr, Medium, etc., don’t assume all people are declaring your personal actions as not enough. Do not assign yourself their blanket judgments.

Are you trying to learn how to get more involved? Have you reached out to an elected official? Have you read an article on intersectionality? Did you march? Wonderful.

Is this all too much to handle right now? That is OK.

If you’re struggling, have you asked for help?

You can do this.

Have you chosen to avoid the media for a while because there are too many triggers? I applaud you.

I like to assume that most of us are doing the best we can. And our best can’t be compared to anyone else’s. Remember that.

Given the intensity of our times right now, I humbly ask that you click on that little heart if this blog spoke to you. I invite you to share this piece with people who may need to hear this message right now. I’m grateful you’re here. Thanks.

But there has to be a REASON…

Dear Doctor…
