It wasn’t an everyday event. It’s hard to comprehend. it’s ok to not feel like yourself. To feel different, disconnected and a drift.
I survived the event, but I don’t feel like I survived.
I survived but I feel like I’m sinking.
I survived but I don’t know how to get through it.
Why did I survive when I’m only existing?
I survived but what for?
I survived but I’m trapped in anxiety, in terror, in shock.
I survived but I don’t know how to recover.
I survived but I don’t feel like a survivor.
My strength has subsided, my desire is gone.
Surrender and trust.
I’m glad you survived.
I’ve never heard those words before. So simple, yet so beautiful and powerful.
I did survive.
