Everything is so intense, all these emotions we had only been half feeling before. it is like being beaten with a rainbow. It is beautiful but it still hurts. Therapist: You should try to take some time for yourself, slow down. Blue: When?! The world is not going to stop for us. Therapist: Yes, but you all have been this way a long time. You don't have to understand it overnight. Give yourself a break. What is it that you need, just for you? You matter and not just in so far as you help the others. You matter, Blue.
