Recently I re-connected with friends I haven’t “seen” in a bit… while catching up my heart sank.
I truly am grateful for their friendship, for our heart felt connection and also their honesty.
Of the real struggle it’s been, especially with mental health, being parents and for the children.
My heart, as a parent, also to teens, I felt it drop 💔 as we caught up.
The past two years has been far from normal. People are literally turning on each other, some people are banned from seeing certain family and friends, based on their personal medical choices, others have lost jobs or have literally been coerced into taking something they normally wouldn’t.
Many are speaking out against what “the truckers” are doing, to try and bring an end to these mandates in Ontario. Perhaps those who do not see the point, their lives perhaps have not changed. Or they have simply chosen to follow along with every “new rule” that the government brings out.
Kindness is SO crucial right now.
If you feel you haven’t been affected in your life, great.
There ARE people who have.
And some in VERY big ways, but unfortunately not big meaning happy.
The true pandemic is the mental health state of our province and country. If yours has not been affected, please carry on. However for those of us who HAS felt an effect on their mental health, I not only see you, I send you love and kindness 🙏💗.
There is alot happening that I personally do not agree with on many levels… which I am allowed to, we are all individuals with our own brain and mindset. I believe that every family with a child or children needs a dog. Does that make MY opinion the only way of living, nope. It’s my choice and my own belief.
Before judging ANYONE for their choices or beliefs, please first take a deep breath and ask yourself WHY?!
Why do I need to criticize someone for a choice they are making? Does it affect me? Ultimately, does it really affect me? Whatever the choice may be? (Obviously if it will negatively affect anyone else, this is not the point of the example). If their choice IS affecting me, WHY did they make that choice?
Opportunity for questions. Opportunity to learn. Opportunity for growth and expansion.
💓 TRUE HEART FELT CONNECTION 💓
People’s faces have been hidden for far too long. It’s drastically apparent the negative mental health affects that are literally holding people hostage. I’ve seen it, I’ve experienced it. Our mental health in this country is struggling. ESPECIALLY if you are a parent, child or senior.
Its time to bring back true heart felt connection, allow children to be children, families and friends to re-connect without fear or judgment, let our teens experience what “going to a dance” is for the love of all things holy.
This is not a “new normal”, one I will never accept and quite honestly my reasoning will ALWAYS stem back to my babies and my own mental and physical health.
This country is experiencing a mental health crisis that will negatively affect our “sick care” (aka health care for sick people) far more than this C19 ever has (research the stats). Sadly, the mental health supports in this province and country are quite disgusting. You would think it would be top quality, considering the government just spent $600M on an election that didn’t accomplish anything. I digress.
What I will acknowledge is the fact that the past 2 years HAS allowed a LOT of people the time to take a deeper dive into themselves and their way of life. Many have shifted, holistic health is booming (just you wait!!!) And SO many people are empowered within their own homes. It’s truly beautiful. Many have appreciated time freedom as well as boundaries. Operating a trades business, this has been my forefront priority. As yes, grateful our jobs were not negatively affected, however we know many whose were.
2022… let’s claim it – the year of HEART FELT CONNECTION, whatever that means to you and with whoever lights your heart up!
Yes things have shifted, some in a very strong and prominent way. I know very true to my core that the way I have been treated that times is how I will NEVER treat another human being. Others, haha I will chuckle one day when I tell you the funny story about how you were bragging about being so “firm” not allowing your family members in your home until they “did what the government told them to do”, but you not only shared a meal and appetizers with me, we also had a nice long chat too! 😉 Thank you for showing me a side that, I know for certain, doesn’t deserve my time or energy!
I saw this the other day… truth & authenticity ❤ Life isn’t “easy”, but really who made the definitions?! Define what life is for you and carry on ✌!
