when emotions override all logic

I felt pretty bad tonight; thinking about the trial, having flashbacks.. so I thought I'd do something 'constructive' with these negative feelings. I've always liked taking pictures, so I decided to take a picture which sort of represented my feelings/thoughts at that particular moment.. 

Surprisingly, I felt a lot better afterwards and I thought I'd share. I'm putting the picture behind the cut just in case - it shows about half of my face, with some (fake) bruises, but I understand that this can be considered triggering for some.

Involve whatever it is that you love to do in the healing process. It helps.
