Yesterday, my sister called me to tell me to turn off the news. “Turn it off, Kayla, you can’t even handle fiction about stuff like this.” I think that’s what she said. I remember more specifically that she said “this will make you spiral if you let it.”


She was right, and I had been watching news, damn-near breathlessly, for two solid hours. I was absolutely spiraling. I was feeling afraid. My anxiety was through the roof.


Her words stuck with me, and I know that someone else can benefit from hearing them as well.


“This will make you spiral if you let it.”


Don’t you dare let it. Stay strong.
