“In the cause of silence, each of us draws the face of [our] own fear.”
Beneath a state of emergency, you might experience distance and longing like a cardboard box flies out of a truck bed and bangs down the wet highway.
You might experience:
[ ] Sensory processing overload
[ ] Discomfort around vulnerability
[ ] Anxiety when shifting modes of relation
[ ] Difficulty embodying radical acceptance
You may confuse the essentials of living with the essentials of survival.
It may be difficult to transform silence into action due to the sheer amount of stressors. Audre Lorde wrote about this. Trust her.
