So let me share some of my favorite lines from this interview: “You should really honor yourself and where you’re at and find the people that you connect with, the movements that you connect with, the therapist that you connect with because they’re out there. So trust that they are out there, you may have to go through some right, but that trust that the people are there to help is available and that you don’t have to continue to suffer no matter what traumas or grief depression levels you’ve been in, you can get it. You can get to the other side in life can be pretty amazing again” -Jill Babiarz “When I was going through the severe depression and having the suicidal thoughts, it is dangerous to be with your thoughts, right? It’s not. I couldn’t meditate and I’ve been meditating my whole life. And so having to listen to that wisdom and not doing that, you know, and knowing that so what is coming to mind to me is to listen to what you need. So when you have all these people doing condolences that you are able to find a therapist you can trust, you can find a support group you can trust, you find a place that you can go and the boundaries also of like not being around all of the people, maybe that are doing the condolence thing for a very long amount of time so that your energy is is preserved because that can be really draining and exhausting.” -Jill Babiarz “You need to realize that the more you stay stuck, it will stay within your body so you want to let it go. So any kind of movement, any kind of breathing exercises would help you let go of that grief and allow you to move on.’” -Dr. Rozina
