You can’t wake up if you haven’t been sleeping.

I’ve been suffering from insomnia. It happens in bouts, I’m used to it. I suck it up, it doesn’t get mentioned.

I fell out with a friend recently. He’s going through some stuff. New, transitionary stuff. Different territory. That’s scary.

It’s important to not only recognize where others are coming from, but that our own perspective plays a part.

Be kind to others. Listen, respect, support.

Be kind to yourself. Stop, breathe, understand.

Find the space in the middle.

Meet there.
