Breathe. You’re going to be okay.

“Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you and they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.”

  1. To Don who sent this to me,
    Thank you does not suffice. All of thes have put it all in perspective at a time when I most needed it. You are an Angel in disguise. And Meg for giving you to me as a friend–And you gave me words in poems that told me how to cope. THANK You both for this. I am going to make a booklet of these for those times I am so broken I forget.
