Grieving and Healing with Rupi Kaur

Rupi Kaur (via @rupikaur_)
I recently found myself in a depressive episode that I couldn't snap myself out of. I felt drained and didn't feel up to “faking it 'til I make it” like some do when going through episodes (which is perfectly fine if it works for you). Instead, I went completely off grid – I deactivated all of my social media accounts and even my phone. I needed the solitude to understand what pained me and how best to heal myself. Once again, I found relief in poetry – notably in the pages of Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur. Read some excerpts after the jump and hopefully, help motivate your own healing process:
