i want to remind you to be patient with yourself, especially in the coming days. all of us are grieving, all of us are scared, and if you find yourself frustrated over being overly emotional or even completely numb, remind yourself that you are suffering a trauma in real time right now. the things you feel are not your fault and are definitely not a sign of weakness.

you need to feel, or not feel, to survive. our reactions are different. follow your survival instinct.

no one has any right to judge you for how you cope or express your feelings. just, yknow, i mean please try to cope in a non- imminently harmful manner. thats all.

@popstar I feel like this is relevant right now too.
