Since I know some of you have been worried about me of late, I should say that this thread isn’t a “this is what’s going on in my life” kind of thing… it’s just something I’m curious about.
I was wondering how you all coped with things that you have little or no control over but which still make your world shatter a little bit. Finding out that someone you love was raped, or has tried to kill themselves, or was physically abused for years as a young child.
Stuff like that. I know they’re all different situations that require different things, but… the basic idea is that there’s not much you can do.
I guess what I’m asking is how you deal with being in the sidelines of tragedy, be it recent or in the distant past.
