As A Reminder, Some People Over Function, Busy Themselves

As a Reminder Some People Over Function Busy Themselves

As a reminder:

Some people over function, busy themselves and complete tasks when facing trauma, grief, anxiety, powerlessness.  

Some people under function, slow down, internalize, & need rest.  

Both are valid and respectable ways to cope. Neither is right nor wrong.
