My 17 year old daughter called me on a recent Sunday evening from work completely exhausted and stated she needed a Mental Health Day and would it be okay if she stayed home from school on Monday.
With absolutely NO hesitation I said "Absolutely."
My daughter like many others of all ages are living in SURVIVAL MODE and it's simply NOT okay. The amount of people who are just trying to get through the day only to repeat it day in and day out is the true pandemic that is destroying our world.
People are constantly anxious, worried, angry, exhausted and in pain emotionally, mentally and sometimes even physically because they do not have the necessary coping mechanisms to handle life. Add to that the rules created by society that do not make taking care of yourself a priority so you decide to do what's not necessarily in your best interest because it's easier to just push through than deal with the consequences.
Watch the Facebook Live for context.
As a holistic practitioner that works with people to create conscious awareness around a new way to live it is often a struggle for me to share them with my daughter. She watched and learned from me, a pro, that lived in pure survival mode most of her life. The best I can do is to continue to live by example and be there to support her in whatever way that looks like depending on the situation.
Today it was
As I know better, I do better and I will continue to share with all those open to learning the many ways in which I have learned to LIVE in this world without having to merely survive it.
