It’s ok that I feel emotional pain.
Ultimately the feelings and pain are not real.
This fear and despair that I feel is not who I am.
I do not try to make the pain go away. There is room here for whatever part of me feels pain.
I notice the earth holding me, the sun blessing me, the wind stroking me, the rain kissing me.
I stroke my own hair, touch my own face, caress my own skin, offering tenderness to whomever is underneath the fear.
I invite my body to notice that I am not dying, I am not exploding, and I am not disappearing.
I am alive. I am here.
I am ok even when I do not feel ok.
