This time we are all living through together is sure different – and they will be moving forward for a while. With many experiencing challenges, including in how we are feeling – know that it’s OK to feel not OK some days. If you are feeling overwhelmed, worried or anxious – know that first of all, you’re not alone, and second, it’s normal to feel that way. When you’ve got all the feels – talk to someone. A family member, friend or an ally – like someone from Pathways. You don’t have to be alone in this experience – and talking helps. It really does, no matter your age. Be sure to you take time for you – lots of folks call it self-care. In addition to talking about those feels, find that thing that works for you: take a break in your day and exercise, watch TV, play video games, cook or bake, read…whatever you do to feel a bit better. You deserve it. Because, you matter. You are important in this world. And you belong – even if right now it means, belonging at home. Just know there are many folks still cheering you on as you continue with your studies, connecting with friends and family online and taking care of you. That’s the number one thing – be kind to you. You are worth it.
