A holiday here in the States. But, cold and raining as well. Which means lots to catch up on inside. The pain is always there. Try really hard to not dissociate. Don't set yourself up to slip and then literally vanish.
You can't control what horrible people do and say. You can't save the world singlehandedly. But you can set boundaries and try to protect your well being.
You have to fight back. You can't just sit back and do nothing. You have to protect yourself.
Crippling despair still happens. Just face it as best you can and keep going.
