When we get asked about our health, we instinctively ponder our physical health. Eating well? Sleeping ok? Getting some exercise and staying hydrated? Then you’re good to go! But we neglect other vital aspects of our being, namely our psychological and emotional health. I have been a professional counselor for 15 years, helping kids, teens, and adults work on issues of anxiety, depression, anger management, addiction, and more. And I can tell you this:
- None of us have our act together as much as we pretend.
- All of us could use more practice with empathy, vulnerability, and authentic relationship.
- It is ok to not be ok.
Take care of yourselves, friends, and each other. No one gets out of here alive, and we need all the help we can get between here and the finish line.
