Allow yourself to cry until you fall asleep, if that’s what it takes to smile the next morning. I’m not saying deny that you aren’t okay. I’m saying acknowledge it so you can move on. I’m saying sometimes the only way to get back up after you’ve fallen is to stay on the ground. To give yourself a moment to regain the air in your lungs.
