Monday, August 26, 2019 – An unexpected turn of events offers you an opportunity to develop your self-reliance today. Nevertheless, a minor setback could temporarily take the wind out of your sails. Don’t get lost in endless analysis; any feelings of self-reproach will soon pass. Release lingering pessimism by saying yes to a spontaneous social invitation and staying open to people who bring optimism back into your life. Finding allies who are sympathetic to your plight changes the dynamics, but don’t expect them to understand the depth of your experience. The truth is you are your own best friend.
