So, lately I have been so caught up with school and work and just life in general. Everywhere I turn there is someone telling you to focus on mental health. Is it me or is it hard to find mental health with everything going on.
There is a global pandemic and every one is stuck at home stressed out over the next big wave. Then there are those who hoped on the vaccination and are getting ready to enjoy life. however, what really is the next step. With s many people who spent the last year locked up in the house. how do we re-introduce ourselves back into society. how do we have conversations with people and catch up when they probably just went through the hardest year of their life. They may have lost a person or two or three, they may have someone right know fighting for their life. What about dating, so many of us have gotten accustomed to being anti-social or maybe we have gotten accustomed to just being in sweats that we have to know go back to dressing up and wearing heels.
The thought alone can be stressful as those working from home return to the workforce and then there is the rest of us. The ones who have been considered essential, the ones who have been working all throughout the pandemic and know can be considered burnout. The ones who have been putting themselves and their families at risk everyday that they leave the house. The ones who at this point don’t want to deal with people because they have been dealing with people all along.
how do we focus on mental health when we deal with all on these on a day to day basis. How do you say enough is enough and let your brain rest. life is truly a mess but like the old saying goes when you life gives you lemons make lemonade and we are about to make the biggest lemonade ever.
