I wish I could wrap you in my arms and tell you it’s all going to be okay, but I suspect those aren’t the words you need right now. I’m so sorry it’s all very hard right now, but I want to let you know that even though you feel like you’re shattering, you’re still whole in the very core of you - I don’t know what we do when the world is like this. I could tell you smoke cigarettes, drink coffee and cry, but that won’t do anything to change it. I think maybe the best thing you can do now is take it day by day: remembering each day, that you are whole and strong, even when you feel like your skin has melted away and everything is raw. Deep inside of you, you are warm. And this day will pass.
