We want you to know you are not alone. In a world where all we know is to be around others, it’s difficult to be told that we aren’t allowed to touch, hug or give a kiss, or to enjoy each other’s company. Some days can feel very long and unbearable.
These past many pandemic months whether you are a child, teen, adult or elderly, it has not been easy, in fact it has been anything but that. We can all relate that at some point we have been feeling lost, confused, sad, and anxious. We wonder if life will ever go back to the normal we once knew?
Too many of us are suffering silently. We have to listen to ourselves when we are hurting and reach out for some hope and direction. This is the time to connect with others in different ways. It’s okay to feel what you are feeling. It’s okay to cry, to show emotion. It’s okay to talk to someone about your struggles. You are not weak.
Communicating our feelings helps us accept what we feel and then we can move forward with optimism and faith in better days coming. When we feel better we are then able to help others who are suffering in the same way.
We encourage you to share your feelings with someone you trust. Just the mere act of acknowledging your thoughts and emotions with another can offer you much peace, calmness and healing and vice versa for them.
Together as a community as we keep each other safe from this pandemic let’s not forget ourselves. Let’s take care of our mental health just as much and show our regard for our own happiness.
You are not alone.
Together we can make a difference.
