Sometimes all it takes is the right person and the right words of encouragement to turn the day around.

In this case it’s a friend who has always been disturbingly good at analyzing me.

“Don’t beat yourself up about being perfect, you’re pretty damn good as it is.”

And because I desperately need to believe him right now, I’m going to.

    I know exactly what you mean. One person’s words helped me make a big and needed change in my life a few years back. Just one person, with one sentence.

      Amazing what just a few words can do.

    Isn’t it amazing to be able to believe in the words of trusted friends?

      I didn’t always appreciate his acute analysis, but I’m certainly thankful for it now!
