Distress tolerance

"Sometimes I'm walking along the street and a shaft of sunlight falls in a certain way across the pavement and I just wanna cry. And then a second later, it's over. I decide because I'm an adult, to not succumb to the momentary melancholy; And I thought that sometimes with my niece, she just had a moment like that. A moment of not knowing how or why, and she just let herself go into the feeling and there was nothing anyone could do to make it any better. It was just her and the fact of being alive, colliding."
