In a world so dark and shitty, I know my babies will grow up and be kind. My boys are mixed. White. Black and Japanese. I may not fear like mothers/families because they are so asian and white in complexion.
But I do fear for the world they are growing up in and will have to navigate someday. This is the time to talk to your kids and explain what is going on. Teach them to love all colors and stand up for what is right. Teach them to not be colorblind because right now we need to see color and love it.
As a mother, my heart hurts for the black mothers and fathers. I hope this all ends soon. We can not sit by and let more lives be taken.
May is half way over already! Time has been flying by this year. How are you holding up? Is this time at home giving you a struggle with mental health? Are you more stressed, or maybe more tired…
Its okay. This isnt a normal life right now. It can be challenging and hard. If you have kids you might be battling a few issues at once. Maybe you dont have kids but are struggling because of a loss of a job.
No matter what is going on, please know there are resources, there are people to help!
Mental disorders; there’s more than just anxiety and depression. OCD is super common, but it can be an issue! Phobias, ugh I have a few. They can make certain tasks harder than need be. Bipolar disorder often times goes misdiagnosed…eating disorders… they may be triggered by stress.
What ever the problem is, know that you deserve to be happy. You deserve to enjoy life. If you are struggling, reach out to me and i can help find the right people to talk to.
