Last night C and I were driving home from the liquor store when one street up from mine, in my new neighborhood, when we saw two cats laying in the middle of the road. They didn’t move as the car slowly approached them. We pulled over and moved them to the side of the road, or, C did because I couldn’t manage to do more than stand in front of them with the intention of moving them. I can’t manage death. We decided we couldn’t leave them there in front of someones house, so we knocked on doors and found the cats owners, they lived across the street from each other. The owner of the black cat cried and petted him, held his paw. The owner of the grey cat had us/C dig a hole in her front yard and bury the cat. She gave us vodka?
I should have worked last night, but I was too sad.
I woke up sad about it still.
“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. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, 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.”

(✿ﾉ◡‿◡)ﾉ *:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧ reminder that if u can’t get out of bed today that’s okay and if u feel like crying on public transportation that’s okay and if u got a bad mark on a test that’s okay because there are still so many forests to explore and cities to get lost in and dogs to pet and u are only a small star in a big universe and u are doing so well
“Don’t talk to yourself in such a way that if you did so to a friend, it would end your friendship.
If you had a friend dealing with the same things, you wouldn’t berate that person, say, ‘You’re not working hard enough,’ ‘You suck,’ or ‘You’re not as good as [whomever].’ You’d offer your friend encouragement, you’d try to point out all the things your friend did right, and how much progress your friend had made.
You should do no less for yourself.Be very careful how you talk to yourself. Because you are listening.”
