Take a step back,
Learn how to breathe.
Take a step back
And just be.
Observe in silence.
Take things in.
Despite what goes on,
Trust what's within.

My brother's death changed my life. For the longest time I couldn't see death in a movie without bawling. It forever changed me. It still does. I can be walking down the street and all of a sudden I freeze. My hair goes up, my heart races. My palms gets sweaty. My world closes in. I have to ground myself. Look at the tree. Feel the breeze. Walk slowly and try to breathe. After ten years I still have attacks. It's not something that just goes away, but we find tools that work for us. Keep positive, and keep striving for life.

My condolences. What you say is true. Wise words. Thank you for sharing.
