Dear Friend of Sanity,
If you are hurting from the unspeakable horrors of the past couple of weeks, I hold you in my thoughts. If you too are struggling to find words, know that you are not alone. I apologise that I am unable to send you the piece I had originally intended for today. I have been unwell for a while. Last week's edition I had cobbled together and scheduled some time ago, but I have since failed to form coherent sentences that wouldn't ring hollow and contrived. Creating 'content' on mental health from the safety of my home feels particularly trivial in this moment. I have found solace and direction in a post on therapeutic witnessing by therapist Mukti Shah, and I am sharing her words with you with her permission.
