It Really is OK to do Nothing!!!
Please, please avoid at all costs, the feeling that you have to be an OVER-ACHIEVER during this pandemic time.
I've had so many conversations about this lately and
I'm seeing so much pressure from so many sources for people and kids to be performing up to or beyond their normal level of production or functioning.
Take a look around us folks; these ain't normal times. Of course we all try to make the best out of a bad situation and try to be as normal as possible; it's called Resilience. It can also be called the pressure to be normal when that might not be called for.
Sure thing, some of us have to function at our usual level depending on what type of job we have, but most of us are struggling with things we've never had to deal with before.
We're adding to the stress of the situation if we're comparing ourselves to others and how they're coping. We're all individual and unique and have our own coping skills. Please let that be OK!
Most of us will do anything to avoid being with ourselves or dealing with our feelings or feeling like we're not good enough!
Give yourself a break - Be Real - Take a Break - Breathe!
Some things to consider:
Everyone has their own emotional reaction to what's happening - we all need to do our best to allow for everyone to express how they're feeling; SAFELY and without the risk of being marginalized
Cramped living arrangements can lead to cramped thoughts
We know we'll eventually get through all of this - right now we have to honor how and what we feel - individually and as a family or group
