“The 5-step process of validating my emotions & writing is therapeutic for me. To recognize my emotions, accept that they are natural, embrace the intensity of it all, understand why I feel this way and then letting it go. This has helped me incredibly through this challenging semester – dealing with a chronic illness, relationship issues as well as losing someone dear and inspirational to cancer as well as being there to support my friend emotionally. Throughout these challenges I reminded myself that success is defined by the smallest things and to return to self-care to ground myself amidst the whirlwind of a mess that was happening around me. I learnt the importance of patience and resilience.
