turn into weeks

They Say

They say

the holidays are the most difficult

time for those dealing with depression,

anxiety and PTSD who often search for a will to live.

there are steps to take to

help ease the pain and loneliness befalling

those who have walked a tougher road than most.

and applying positive thinking to your everyday life.

who the fuck are they to make

recommendations to calm the demons

and ease the fear in a life they’ve never walked personally.
