those are wise words, “self-care, talking to friends, family and strangers, finding new resources and connecting with others whom have shared experience”. That’s a great sentence, and so true.
I was feeling very low recently, and without even really thinking stepped up to help someone who I thought just needed a hand with a bag to their car. I turned out to be someone really struggling, and the fact that I’d reached out to them made their day, opened a conversation between us, and completely turned around my mood. Talking with a stranger, which in turn reminded me I’d been slacking on my self-care.
@scully, it’s been a few weeks since you bravely shared your story – how have you been coping? Tell us how you’ve been, we want to know if you’re okay.
