For every distressful situation, there are four ways* to consider handling it.

Perhaps, somedays are dark for you, but I bet if you took pen to paper you could come up with 100 things that you've enjoyed in your life. If you're stuck on thinking of 13 Reasons Why, then counter balance this negative thinking with identifying 100 reasons why to keep living the life you've been given. Give yourself the gift of gratitude to cope with life's challenges. And, if you need some help, that's okay. That's why we're here.
As you prepare for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, we hope you will allow yourself some time for being before all the doing begins. Remember to breathe!
