What’s needed more than ever right now is compassion; both towards yourself, and others. People are struggling, they’re melting down, they’re anxious. So as much as you can, have compassion, and be understanding.
Watch your expectations. If they’re high, you need to remember that many people are overloaded; they can only do what they can do.
If a store is out of what you need, take a deep breath and try again another day, or order online. If you notice you’re irritated with someone who’s scared, maybe they’re triggering your own fears or where you feel impotent to help them. If you’re overwhelmed and having a rough day, disconnect from others. If you’re tired and having a meltdown, step back and do something self-nurturing. Be kind to yourself.
Now some of you are handling things brilliantly- huge bravo to you!! Truly! You are helping keep the energy high for everyone else so thank you. Your light is a powerful healer, please continue to shine it.
For those who are not in that place: it's time for extra self-care, and to go within to heal and love yourself. Just be with what is, with where you’re at emotionally and mentally. Don’t judge yourself, have gentleness, and tremendous compassion.
We’ll get through this, one day, sometimes simply one moment, at a time.
I got your back.
Sending you love.
Me, Tina Germain, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
