It’s tough being wide awake when so many are sleeping. Thanks to a daytime nap for that.

Just now I was reminded of the atrocious behavior of Stephan Collins and my stomach is in knots. Perpetrators don’t fit a certain description or look a certain way. They can be moms, dads, siblings, teachers, clergy, neighbors, ANYONE.

I’ve avoided the news about him & his behavior- muted his interviews, closed the CNN app on my iPhone when he’s mentioned, etc. So not too long ago, I read the blog of a famous person and -bam- a story about Collins.

My stomach keeps turning and my heart is racing. Breathe, use your coping skills, you are okay.

Breathe. Use your coping skills. You are okay.

You’re safe.

& to others on my mind tonight, you’re safe too.
