  • Sometimes it's incredibly easy to lose your head in the thick of it all.

    Changes any of these can be stressful, upsetting, or even numbing.
    The mind can become hazy, blurring out a lot of the confidence you once had, causing confusion or unwanted frustration.

    If you know anyone going through a tough time, or just needs a little reassuring, reach out in a way you're comfortable doing. It doesn't have to be crazy, because even the slightest gesture on a train platform can make a person's day just a little easier, and in turn, help them through the haze.
