How to deal with insecurity in uncertain times:
We are living in an unprecedented time of uncertainty. To be living in the Information Age and have no idea what's happening or what's going to happen, is making life real hard for a lot of us in a number of ways.
One of those things that people are dealing with is a new found insecurity. By insecurity I'm referring to a lack of understanding about where you stand in relation to others. Social distancing is reeking havoc on all of us, but especially on relationships. Here's how to deal - 📌 remember that EVERYONE is under stress right now and are therefore operating differently. So how they are showing up [or not] has less to do with you and more to do with them freaking the fuck out, too. 📌 get in touch with what you need and then action it! If you know you're looking for support, you have to ask for it. If you just need to vent, ask for a listener. USE YOUR VOICE to get what you need. Control what you *can* control.
When I was feeling hopeless earlier this week, I too found it hard to even voice my feelings. A friend reached out and gave me the gift of listening to me vent. The best gift of all was reassuring me that my time, our time, will not be wasted. That we still matter.
So if you have it in you - if you're clear enough, safe enough 📌 reach out to your people and give them the gift of support or an ear to listen.
Here is your own reminder: 🦄 YOU STILL MATTER!
Would love to hear how anyone else is dealing with this new insecurity some of us are feeling. Let me know below 👇 - 7 hours ago
