In Covid, many more people have naturally been struggling in one degree or another with depression. It's a crazy ass world we are all walking in. I was telling a friend lately that we all just need to keep walking each other through the mess.
Literally and figuratively.
I believe that most of us are searching for a grounding cord in a very big way.
The good news is that our bodies are a reservoir of chemical resources that we can tap into at any time to feel better and we sometimes forget about this. We're all natural chemistry sets that don’t cost even a dime.
However, on the other side of the coin, is that it is often helpful to just allow ourselves to feel blue. Putting our arms around the darkness helps us to move through it, rather than trying to push it away. A mental health day on the couch isn't a bad thing.
Also this week, a short Covid article that helped me to better understand why I like to talk to people, even strangers and people I barely know.:
THE VALUE OF TALKING TO STRANGERS.
Have a good weekend my friends.
