Hey survivors, I feel you this week. I feel your trauma and rage and depression. I feel your readiness to mobilize to action with me.
I feel the need for community and for self care. For me, this means that I am going to do my best to:
1. Get good food, exercise, sleep.
2. Not engage with hateful strangers on the Internet.
3. Take media breaks.
4. Look for ways to laugh.
5. Remember that I can't fix the overwhelming problems of the world and count the work I can do, whether it be a conversation about patriarchy/white supremacy, a performance with Meta Theatre Company or educating myself as much as possible. I can do these things and remember that they make a difference and I can feel proud for my own small impact on my corner of the world.
What are you doing for you?
