Response of the week

Thanks for your last Sunday Post. This post came close to home.
I’ve always been a little empathetic and years ago, after another major tragedy, I found myself getting physically and chronically ill after not being able to separate myself from this event. After years of therapy and alternative medical intervention, I realized I needed to find ways to distance myself from what was happening around me.

While my husband can listen and read the news all day, every day with no ill effects, I can’t, and I can now plead for myself to recognize this difference.

Disconnecting has been incredibly healing. I now have more time to spend with my family and do things that help improve my resilience, mentally and physically, which I need to continue my career as a young child educator and mother.”

– Glad to hear you’ve found what works and helps you, Katie.
