Sometimes the only band-aids you have are platitudes mixed with the raw truth.

Those days where you feel like you won’t survive and the days where you learn you can, and all the beautifully horrific moments in between.”

I could really relate to what she was saying.” By Chanty (offered via promise of anonymity)
