Eleanor Roosevelt Once Said…

Anna Eleanor Roosevelt was born on October 11, 1884 and died on November 7, 1962. Eleanor was an American political figure, diplomat and activist. She served as the First Lady of the United States from March 4, 1933, to April 12, 1945, during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s four terms in office, making her the longest-serving First Lady of the United States.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, “I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” You must do the thing you think you cannot do. – Eleanor Roosevelt

This statement resonates deeply with me because I have lived through horror and I know the past horrors have given me courage and strength and I’m still trying to find that in the most recent horrors I survived.

I do this every day do the things I think I cannot and I need to be kinder to myself. We are our own worst enemy but we should learn to be our own friend.

Do you have courage to be your own friend and stop being so hard on ourselves?
