"You're doing good," she said, "don't let them tell you any differently."
And then she was gone.
But it was enough to brighten my day. I don't even know how sincere the comment was. She could've just been BSing me for all I know.
But, still, she said it. And I heard it. And it made me feel good.
Words of encouragement. Positivity. Praising achievement...whatever you want to call it, try it! There's never enough to go around. So, don't worry, you'll make somebody's day. And you'll brighten your own!
