Fighting racism as an empath

#MentalHealthMonday⁠⁠My heart is so heavy for all my Black family members, friends, and community. ⁠⁠The racism in this country is disgusting, but you know what shook me even more over the past few days? Seeing so many vile comments filled with hatred in places I never dreamed they’d be. I was flabbergasted, and my heart sank even more. But at least this brought racists out to the surface, right? So I know who I don't want in my life. ⁠⁠Like I learned years ago in therapy... we must have darkness to see the light. And this week, I can see that light in the unity, in the protests still going strong, and in the changes starting to happen.⁠⁠As an empath, I’m trying to find the balance between keeping up with what’s going on, using my energy to speak out and act, and resting so that I’m not completely depleted. ⁠⁠We must keep fighting against racism and police brutality. There's obviously a lot of work to do, and it's going to take all of us to make real change happen. But we must also take care of our mental health. ⁠⁠This is hard. This is heavy. It’s going to be a long road, and we can’t quit. So know that it's okay to take a break when you need one. I always find that when I do that, I come back even stronger. ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠#ichoosebeauty #blacklivesmatter #protests #protesters #endracism #nomoreracism #changeiscoming #changeispossible #historyinthemaking #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthcare #mentalhealthissues #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealthwarriors #mentalwellness #mentalhealthawareness ⁣⁠ #mentalhealthhelp #mentalhealthcommunity⁠
