These are incredibly trying times. And there is so much that we can’t control, which makes it all the more stressful.
So I wanted to take a minute to share a few gentle reminders to help you through this difficult time with the coronavirus.
Deep breaths. We’re in this together.
1. Your Feelings Are Valid
It’s ok to feel what you need to feel. There is no “right way” to feel right now. You’re allowed to be sad, scared, anxious, frustrated, mad… These are your feelings and they are valid.
It’s ok to feel them, express them (with kindness and compassion for those around you, who are also struggling) and work through them as they come and go.
I hope that you know that now is the time to be gentle with yourself.
2. Know That This Is Temporary
What we’re experiencing with the coronavirus absolutely needs to be taken seriously. Self-isolation and social distancing are the best actions that we can take as a society to relieve the burden on our health care system and flatten the curve.
But that doesn’t mean that this is easy.
So I want you to remember that this is temporary. This will eventually pass.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t struggle with this (if you’re feeling that way, re-read the last point and take a few calming breaths). I just want you to know that this is not your forever. It’s your right now. Take it one day at a time and remember that this will pass.
3. We Are In This Together
You are not alone in this. We are cohesively experiencing this together. And, as always, we are better together.
Let’s (virtually) lean on each other, sweet friend. Kindness makes the world go round. Even when it feels like it’s stopped spinning.
Health and love,
Stay safe and stay well. My heart is with you.
Thought of the day: We’re in this together.
