Our emotional language has become strident,
under the relentless pounding
of modern life.
Let's dial it back.
Take a deep breath, everyone.
Sit for a moment and breathe.
I know I'm always telling you that,
but there's a reason:
It transforms the moment—
the neon flashes of anger and despair—
into something magically more manageable.
You don't have to want to do it,
this sitting and breathing.
Do it because I said so.
Just trust me.
Your emotional language will shift from strident to—
to who knows what?
To poetic, even.
To a new depth.
To something recognizably human.
