Look, you’re doing fine. Yes, some times heads and hearts feel like they’re going to explode. Yes, some times emotions run so high you can’t see anything. Yes, some times hurts go so deep they stop you from moving. That’s okay. It’s all okay. What’s good is that you are you, and you are wonderful. You really are doing fine.
Friend, you are loved. You are so loved. You are surrounded. I know some days it feels like you’re all alone and completely isolated. That’s okay. It’s hard, but it’s okay. Know this; you are not alone. You are not alone. Maybe you didn’t hear me. You are not alone. You are surrounded with love. I love you.
Deep breath. Slow, even breaths. Stretch out. Release your muscles. Sink into the floor. Feel your pain slip off into the carpet. Let your anxiety drip into the fibers. Let it go. It’s going to be okay. You’re going to be okay. You are okay.
