As we go through this very difficult time, I am made aware of how friendship and health become such a commodity. We tend to take so many things for granted because we seem to think that time is our friend. We forget that in the blink of an eye our lives may drastically change, and those we neglected to reach out to on a regular are no longer accessible to us.
As the days linger during these difficult times, many of us will go through depression, have thoughts of suicide, and ask the question “how am I going to recover from this?”
However, like all storms, this too shall pass. Here are a few things to remember to tell yourself:
You are not alone.
You are stronger and more resilient than you think.
This is not your first rodeo.
Your mental health is of the utmost importance, so make sure to check-in with yourself – reflect on how you’re feeling. Elevate your vibration, strengthen your faith – prayer is important. Forgive yourself and others, and ask for forgiveness. Count your blessings – thank God every day that you are healthy. And lastly, stay connected with your family and friends to make sure that they are ok.
I pray that we rise above this, and stay safe both mentally and physically.
