Gretchen Lawson: It is really natural and normal for us to have good days and bad days. Many people have days that are great and days that are really hard. I want you to know you’re not alone in having good days and bad days. I think it is really helpful to always find someone that you trust, someone that can be supportive and encouraging, that you can talk to about the days, especially the days that you feel down. Reach out to a friend. Ask for prayer. Ask for help. Get out of your environment, maybe. Go for a walk.
