Vanishing Act

Trigger warning: depression.

I’ve tried to welcome the emptiness when it comes, letting it wash over me. Allowing it to take hold of my entire being. Letting myself slip into its clutches. I do this because I have heard it’s the right thing to do. Move through the feelings rather than try to avoid them. The only way out is through, right? Just know it’s temporary. Let the pain move through you but do not hold it. It is not yours to hold.
