T-3 asked us to write in a blog post some of what we said to T-3 in teletherapy today. We said that we wish that health organizations, whose mission is to protect lives, would use a language of unity, compassion, and mutual support and not language of violence and war.
If people can social distance as a precaution as requested by WHO and governments, it would be a gift.
This is a time when we can show unity and support for all people! Many people are scared. That makes sense. If we can find ways to love each other right now that are not our usual ways, we can all feel supported, and we can have fun doing it, too. We have seen people post pictures in their windows and online. People are sharing resources. People are checking in on one another.
This makes us feel connected! This helps us stay calm and feel held.
What can help you feel held right now? What are your needs? This is a safe place to say what they are. People here have been very loving and supportive.
There is enough love for everyone! There is no shortage of love!
