One New Yorker has created a therapeutic way for New Yorkers to express their feelings about the presidential election. Venture to the Union Square station in Manhattan and you’ll find a wall covered in post-it notes–love notes addressed to America.
The genius behind this “subway therapy” is someone named Levee, who said that he wants people to know he’s there for them if they want to talk and get things off their chest. And as you can imagine, Americans sure have a lot of things to get off their chests now that Donald Trump has been elected president.
Levee, not an actual licensed therapist, has been hosting subway therapy sessions for quite a while. But this is the first time post-its have become involved, and they’ve since become an Instagram sensation.
He told ABC New York his inspiration for the post-it project. “Because of how stressful the last couple of days were, I thought it would be nice to have something that people could do really quickly so they could maybe get something off their chest.”
According to BuzzFeed, over 1,500 notes were stuck to the wall, expressing everything from frustration and fear to optimism and emotional support. The notes read things like, “I love this town and I love this country,” “I wept for our children and I wept for our future,” “I regret my vote,” “You will not divide us, love is everything” and “Time to fight back.”
