Just like water streaming down a window pane whose path is jagged and irregular because of unseen obstacles, ones' emotional path related to the tragic events of September 11, 2001 may also seem jagged or irregular. Feelings of grief, anger, disbelief, isolation, disorientation, and sadness may come and go in an apparently random pattern.

And some may wonder why after 14 years these feelings are worse instead of better.
The effects of trauma, especially mass trauma such as the 9/11 terrorist attacks, can be hard to understand or predict and can be escalated by other life situations. Firefighters who have since retired may be feeling an increase in depression, feelings of "life disorientation", and guilt as their role in the firehouse has changed. There is more time to think about the events and lost friends without the responsibilities associated with being "on the job". Parents whose children were too young to remember that day may feel frustrated or angry when their 13 year old can't understand the annual early September morning struggle. Feelings of deep regret may resurface as time insensitively marches on and details of loved ones are very unintentionally forgotten. A friend may be guilt ridden when they acknowledge that they just can't make it to another memorial. Anger may set in when less flags are flying or when interacting with a person who has seemingly "forgotten". Feelings may increase or decrease, pop up in unexpected places, or go suddenly numb and detach.

It is so important to keep in mind that while time certainly does heal, it doesn't always heal in a straight line.

So, be gentle and forgiving with yourselves, support your family, be sensitive to your neighbors, reach out to your friends, and be a little extra kind to your fellow commuters ... because 14 years doesn't necessarily mean the hurt is all gone.

With Much Love,
Michelle Cleary, LCSW

Louise Hay's book, You Can Heal Your Life, was a huge part of my upbringing. Anytime I was sick or experiencing physical pain we would grab this book and look up the emotional correlation and corresponding affirmation. I was aware at a young age how everything was connected and how powerful my thoughts, words and actions were in my own healing.
If you didn't know already, Louise Hay died yesterday. And when I consulted her Power Thought cards this afternoon, this quote came up.
I feel it's so potent! An incredible reminder for me during the many exciting changes in my life and business right now; a reminder for anyone healing from loss; and for all of us through all the changes - big, small, positive and wild - that are occurring now and always.
The back of the card expands the affirmation further: "I cross all bridges with joy and ease. The "old" unfolds into wonderful new experiences. My life gets better all the time." Thank you, Louise. For sharing your light and wisdom and for inspiring so many to do the same. xoxo

In the wake of President Trump's announcement on July 26, 2017, that transgender Americans would be barred from serving in the military "in any capacity," TIME looks back at an interview in a 2015 documentary with Jamie Ewing, who served in the Army and the National Guard before November 2013, when she says she was discharged for being transgender.⠀

Ewing then became a defense contractor. “I would trade my current job in a heartbeat for the Army if it meant I could wear a uniform again," she said in the film by Gillian Laub (@gigilaub) and Shaul Schwarz (@shaulschwarz). “It's all about that sense of serving my country.” In her role at that time, she interacted with many of the same commanders she worked with while in uniform. "They know me. They know my work ethic and skill sets, and they have no issues,” she added. “I'm still the same person."⠀

Watch the full documentary "Camouflaged Identity" by @gigilaub and @shaulschwarz on TIME.com
