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,

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.
