I'm not Catholic, but I decided to participate in Lent. I'm giving up being negative to and about myself. To help me, I'm going to post an affirmation daily.
Day 2: I've gotten really good at calming my mom down when she is angry or upset. This is important, especially as her liaison for all of her medical stuff. I work to try and calm her down, and to try and get her to see the silver linings, when she feels like her world is crap.
