Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe, and remember that you’ve been in this place before.
You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again.
This will pass. I promise it will pass.

Our bathrooms are for Employees only, and it’s much easier to say We don’t have a bathroom at all then to say it’s not a public bathroom. I swear to god i wish it was okay to punch customers. They always say this and then laugh like it’s the best Joke they came up with all day.
