CW, TW: Suicide. If you or someone you know is considering suicide, please read this.
I’ve only taken some dance classes when I was really young. I don’t remember any of it and didn’t even continue with it. I didn’t think I was able to create anything meaningful.
Almost three months ago, my dear friend committed suicide. I am unable to speak more on it without crying. I went to a dance studio that was open at my school soon after finding this out and then just let myself go. I don’t know what lead me there but I’m grateful to have gotten there. After dancing things out and trying to feel centered and grounded, I realized that it is possible to transform negative energy into an artistic message. I just wanted to grieve the loss of my friend in some way. I recorded and watched myself and began to feel light and able to breathe. I feel that I am working through my grief instead of letting it control me.
