Comment of the Week

Thank you for you latest Sunday Post. This post hit close to home.
I have always been a bit of an empath and years ago after another major tragedy, I found myself physically and chronically ill after I was unable to separate myself from this event. After years of therapy and alternative medical intervention I realized I needed to find ways to distance myself from what what going on around me.

While my husband can listen to and read the news all day, every day without any ill effects, I cannot, and I am now able to advocate for myself acknowledging this difference.

Disconnecting has been incredibly healing. I now have more time to spend with my family and do things that help improve my resilience, mentally and physically, which is what I need in order to continue my career as an educator to young children, and as a mother.”

-Glad to hear you’ve figured out what works for and helps you, Katie.
