I do my best to keep politics out of my posts, but I feel the need to write some things.
I have a mixed husband and kids. He is black and japanese, as he says heavy on the japanese, as thats the culture he enjoys the most.
I myself am apart of the LGBTA+ and a woman…
I have friends of all walks of life.
Humans rights were never a debate for me.
I stand strong on this election was about morals and human rights and equality.
I hope you sleep easier. I hope my friends of color, and minorities can take a deep breathe. I hope women may gain control over THEIR bodily rights.
I do not apologise if you disagree. I think trump is trash.
This is not the end, we still have to work. We need to keep advocating. We must protect women’s rights. Children in cages. Immigration rights. Poc lives. We still have work to do. Please dont stop.
World Mental Health Day is celebrated every year on October 10th.
It was established October 10, 1992 by Richard Hunter. Hunter was the Deputy Secretary General of the World Federation for Mental Health.
The top 5 warning signs:
Long term sadness or irritability
Extreme high and low mood swings
Excessive fear, worry or anxiety
Dramatic change in sleeping and lr eating habits
October 8th is also National Depression Screening Day. I highly suggest reaching out if you feel you are having some trouble. Its nothing to ever be ashamed about. You have to take care of you!
You can speak with your primary care provider or an obgyn. Seeking therapy, or really any type of help for your mental health is a step in the right direction!
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.
