I’ve had a few clients going through some incredibly challenging shit recently so I wanted to write to anyone who’s going through something super hard. If it’s not you, consider forwarding this to a friend who’s having a hard time.
I know you’re going through one of the most challenging situations possible right now and something you never would have wanted to happen.
You and your family are in my heart as you go through this.
I know it’s one of the hardest and most painful things you’ve ever been through and my heart actually hurts when I think about it. And I also know that you’re going to get through this.
It sucks. It’s painful. And you’re going to figure it out and move through it.
Let me know if there’s anything I can do to support you. Hit “Reply” to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know.
Sending you so much loving supportive energy to you and your family.
Keep taking good care,

Jenny sat at the back of the bus, her nose buried in her Nancy Drew book. She was a bit of an ackward kid and didn’t fit in with the other girls. She liked to play while rough while they pretended to bake and played with dolls.
She loved this book and was reading furiously. A young woman in the book was taken hostage and suddenly Jenny thought, “What if that happened to me?” She looked over her shoulder and stared at the car behind the bus craning her neck to get a look at the driver.

A friend is 40 minutes late for our coffee date but I give him a hug and act as if he is on time. A colleague doesn’t show up for a meeting we’ve had planned for a long time, but I shrug it off and reschedule. The internet install guy drags out a simple procedure that should take 20 minutes so that it takes over 3 hours, but I smile, make polite conversation and laugh at his jokes.
I have gotten good at acting as if everything is fine. I have gotten good at hiding my anger. I have gotten good at avoiding conflict at all costs.
