      TW: deep despair, ideation of self harm


      One time I was messaging with someone who was in a crisis and they said something like


      “I don’t have the will to live” and I said something like

      “when you hold your breath what happens next?”

      They said

      “I don’t know, you run out of oxygen?”


      And I said “whether you hold your breath a long time or a short time, when you hold your breath different feelings will occur…


      You may feel pressure in your throat

      You may feel tightness in your ribs

      You may feel burning in your lungs

      You may look around  to see if anyone is noticing

      You may feel restless

      You may feell confusion about what’s happening (even tho you chose it)


      These are all feelings and you may think aboit each or some of them too


      But what HAPPENS NEXT is always: you breathe again”


      ❤️ And i think that’s true in life, too


      Lots of things can cross your mind and be felt and thought and feelings and thoughts can cycle with one anotherr almost perpetually


      But what HAPPENS NEXT IS your body


      does what it needs to in order to keep you going


      Sometimes, your body needs you to follow its cue,

      Instead of asking IT to follow your feelings or your thoughts


      Be well, my friends



      You are loved 🥰

      Take a breath

      … And another
