Social Connection Physical Distancing | Notes From 5/4/2020 Free Chat with CCM

It’s ok to wallow sometimes, it's ok to just survive sometimes and not put that happy face on,

what do you need to comfort yourself for a little while? it's ok to do that

It's hard to always work towards a state of positivity sometimes it's ok to just sit with what is

Showing up when you aren’t feeling great is an act of strength

Set a time limit for wallowing…. I get to wallow from 6-7 for example

We need to feel our feelings but we don’t need to allow the emotion to take the driver's seat indefinitely

Showing your emotions can be helpful for kids, you don’t always have to show up as the strong one

If you need to release some emotions and you don’t know how, go to your bedroom and set a timer for three minutes, beat your bed with the pillow for three minutes, when timer goes off immediately start journalist, this will really help to release emotions

when elements of our life are not longer there we question our identity; this is an opportunity for renewal and reinvention
