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. This couldn’t have come at a better time. I have been divorced for 6 years and just found out that my former husband of 33 years has remarried. I am still single. Why it still hurt, I’m not sure, but this post was very comforting. Thank you.

  2. I needed something like this and will indeed try to breathe..find myself still crying every night and throughout the days..he left me on my birthday after together for 8 months..left a forever hole and I miss him so much. when you’re rejected like that, you doubt your own worth, hopefully this will all pass. I really loved him and my kids liked him too.

  3. This is truly the kick that I needed. The situation I’m in right now is horrendous, and unfortunately I’ve been here before. But I survived, it was last minute, but I survived. I’m still not 100% sure, but these beautiful words have certainly started me thinking a bit more positively. Thank you so much…

  4. This came at a good time. This is the second time i’ve fallen in love with someone who doesn’t lovs me back. It never gets easier, especially when the guy you love is straight. I don’t know wjat to do anymore; i’m failing my classes, i’ve been being emotionally manipulated by someone who had claimed to love me for two years (even though i never returned the feeling), now i have to go to a guidance counselor for help. I really hope this post comes true for me soon.
