We heal differently

By Gabrielle, 8th grade | November 2021 … When it comes down to healing, we all do it differently. The way I heal normally depends on what I’m healing from. The majority of the time, when I heal, I think about the positives. Sometimes if I feel sad or angry, I bake something, most likely brownies. Sometimes I will talk to my parents about how I am feeling.
