There are hundreds of platitudes and sayings about how to be strong and how it will get better, but you know what? Sometimes it just sucks.
Sometimes there is no way around it and sometimes the only option is to sit and just breathe. Just breathe. In. Out.
A friend can remind a friend to do this. A friend can send a hug and hold your hand even when they are not close by. So I am, even when you cannot feel it, I am holding your hand and am hugging you when you need it.
And for the rest of us? Just breathe. Sometimes we all need to be reminded of that.
