I’m writing today’s blog post for all of us who are not feeling particularly cute these days.
You are much cuter than you feel.
I’m not being cute — I know this because of all the years I’ve spent being a cute-enough therapist to many cute-enough people who have trouble realizing how cute they are.
Just last week, I was doing a remote therapy session on the phone with a cute-enough person who was feeling sad, depressed, and anxious about many non-cute realities.
Because I cutely and acutely know that shame and self-doubt often increase during crises, I suggested at the end of the session that, once a day, she look in the mirror and say to herself, “Hey, cutie!”
It was cute how dramatically her mood improved after I said this. I could hear the cute lightness in her tone when she promised she would try my cute prescription.
Hey, cutie! What do you think would happen if you tried that same cute prescription?
Hey, cutie! Do you see any cuties in my latest images?
That last image shows my latest cute attempt to get more cute engagements on Twitter.
Hey, cutie! You’re still cute, no matter how many cute people engage with you on social media and elsewhere.
Hey, cutie! Consider leaving a cute comment, below.
Hey, cutie! Many thanks to you and all the other cuties who help me create this cute blog, every day.
