Pandemic anxiety? You’re not alone…

These are strange days, for sure. I just want to remind anyone out there who is feeling anxious, that you’re not alone.

I’ve written a couple of series’ on the pandemic, with over 100 posts, so if you need encouragement, I hope you find it on this blog.

Yet, sometimes we need a fresh reminder. Even if we’ve heard it before, even if we ‘know it by heart’.

While it may seem that some people are ‘sailing through’ these days, not everyone is, and if you are struggling with anxiety, whether to do with the pandemic, or anything else, you’re certainly not alone.

Sometimes people in general like to keep busy to keep away from unsettling thoughts, to avoid their struggles, or to not think about death. Perhaps to not think about what comes after death. In the pandemic, this has changed, and while there may be positives in having more space and time to think about life more deeply, this can be unsettling for many people. Perhaps some good can come from thinking about things, and where we are putting our hope and trust.

I don’t know if today for you is a joyous one or a difficult one. But if you are struggling, you are not alone.

Try to find ways to move through your day with some structure and clarity. Take a moment to sit with your difficult thoughts and emotions. Pray. Reach out. Ask for help.

There are so many people going through many things just now, and you’re not alone, and you matter.

Take it a moment at a time for now if you have to. Know that you’re not alone, and don’t give up. ❤ x
