you can’t calm the storm … so stop trying. what you can do is calm yourself. the storm will pass.
your bff texts you at 3pm from her work conference at the beach + says you should drive down so the two of you can get into some trouble together. so you do the only logical thing + email your boss asking to take tomorrow off work. you set your away message, go home + pack a few things — and hit the road for a much needed long weekend with your bestie + the beach.
when people hurt you over and over, think of them like sandpaper; they may scratch and hurt you a bit, but in the end, you end up polished and they end up useless.
