Hey, it’s okay
Take a deep breath
You’re going to be okay
I know it doesn’t feel like it right now
You’re tired, so tired
But you can’t sleep
The medicine will help with that, I promise
Don’t try to hide the pill under your tongue
That never works
Take another deep breath
You’re so lucky, my love
You are so loved
Don’t give up on the world now, my dear
It has a few surprises left for you
Make a list of things you love
Start with five (cats, your blue cozy sweater, the smell of rain, dancing to Taylor Swift, the click of high heels when you walk)
Add more, keep adding them
Make it all the way to a hundred
You deserve all those things
One more deep breath, okay?
We got you back into school whenever you’re ready
I think it will be better this time
Your friends want to see you
They left you a cake with pink icing and (crooked) green letters
That’s a Harry Potter thing, right?
You made me read those, remember?
Oh honey, what can I do?
