The best form of self-care to me, is letting myself be sad. Like fully sad. I’m talking bawling my eyes out and doing everything in my power to get every single tear out.

I’ll free up an evening, get into bed, turn all the lights off and put my headphones in. Then I play every song that makes me think of my dad, and I just cry my eyes out until they’re puffy and my face is red, and my nose is streaming.

Then I’ll have a huge sleep and the next day I’ll feel better because I know I’ve let out everything that I was building up.”
