Take a break from this toxic place, go out and take a walk. Go get something nice to eat and enjoy looking at people. Breathe some fresh air and refresh your minds. Think about where you are now in life and where you’d like to be. Take a picture; of you, a friend, the streets, life. Make someone smile today; just say Hello. Be the change you wish to see in the world.
I sometimes wonder if the fuckton of psycho/physiological distress has made you the writer that you are today or if you could write so beautiful even despite of it. I wouldn't wish that on anyone but your transparency on the matter and your writing acknowledging so many ill aspects of our lifes and how to maybe deal with them is balm and food for the soul! It certainly has helped me a lot. I wish for the scales to always tip for the better days for you, thank you Pia!
