This place …

This place you are at …..

You’re going to be okay. You may have been in this place before and you’ve probably felt this uncomfortable, anxious and scared before. Remember how you survived, and you will survive again. I promise.

These feelings won’t can’t break you; they can’t break you. Yes, they’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass.

Breathe deep and remember, you will survive. I promise.

It might feel unbearable right now and maybe these feelings will not leave you immediately, but sometime soon they are going to fade. I know they are. You know they are.

This will pass. I promise.
