Burke said she’s spent her “entire life numbing her feelings up to this point,” and she’s “learning that really living through them is MUCH harder.”
She added, “I think all of this means that the best thing for me was to really experience my feelings, whatever they might be, to be alone for a few days. I would really encourage everyone else out there to try and not feel guilty about needing that space.
