Words uttered often throughout my life. There is a specific point in time where those words speak volumes.
When misread, or in an uncomfortable environment those words are a warning.
What they are saying is that I am feeling my footsteps edge closer to the drop. That I feel so incredibly overwhelmed in that moment that I know I’m about to be shoved off the cliff.
Drop into the abyss of a meltdown and have to climb my way back out again. Which is a slow process and it is very disruptive, on multiple levels.
I know so intuitively that feeling that precedes a meltdown, all I can do is beg the person who I’m interacting with...
All my best and love
