Dealing with Anxieties in a Pandemic
New reports are coming out each day. New recommendations & restrictions are being imposed. A lot of fear and false information is being spread, as well.
🌟If you are a Christian, please remember that we are called to live lives of honesty & integrity, and we do not operate in a spirit of fear. Please refrain from sharing or reposting anything that is designed to incite further panic or division in a time when we should be a voice of calmness & unity. And please stop repeating falsehoods immediately: fake cures, false narratives, conspiracy theories, etc. It is the opposite of helpful—it is harmful.
🌟I understand now is a difficult time to unplug completely from social media, considering we are all looking for some kind of information or connection during this difficult season. But if you are struggling with anxiety right now, I encourage you to hide anything and anyone from your newsfeed that contributes to that stress & anxiety. When life returns to normal, you can always undo that, but for now, save yourself some headaches and cultivate an encouraging and uplifting social media feed for yourself. If you are unsure of how to do that, let me know and I will show you how.
🌟And if you need prayers, errands run, or anything right now, please let me know. I am happy to help and I have many friends who feel the same. 🧡I love you guys!
The simple truth is, this will probably not be the last time we face uncertain times. As Mr. Rogers once said, "Look for the helpers."
And where you see none, be one.
