Hard is not a competition. You can acknowledge that your life is relatively easy and also wish that it wasn't so hard. You can know that it could be so much worse and also wonder when you're going to get a damn break.
If you are hurting, grieving, waiting, hoping, and/or just really freaking tired: Advent is your season. You don't have to listen to the people who want you to skip straight to Christmas and fake happy. You can sit with the darkness for as long as it takes, because getting better takes time. And Advent is a season for acknowledging that everything isn't all right.
