I can not begin to imagine what you are going through. Please know I am here for you when you are ready to talk but in the meantime, this quote seemed appropriate. “Cry whenever you need to. Scream. Shout. Lay on the floor. Sob in the shower. Be still. Run. Walk, ceat. Live your truth. Share without fear. Listen. Release your pan. Breathe. Be courageous. Throw away the map. Wander. Be real. Be compassionate. Read. Seek friendship. Be vulnerable, don’t fear being broken.” – Zoe Clark-Coates
