Right now, many of us feel divided in many different ways. In heated disagreements there are common themes: passion, beliefs, and some level of concern or fear. The fear might be a fear of circumstances changing - or staying the same. When we recognize others may be feeling fearful as well, we are more likely to respond with compassion and a desire to understand. Things to consider: Create a support system, meaning a network of people with whom you feel safe, can be your authentic self, and can openly converse. Don't let fear get the best of you. Before you become distressed about the potential implications of current decisions, go to your trusted sources for a reality check. Step away from the news and seek connection and moments of joy. If you are experiencing prolonged or debilitating fear, seek help sorting out your emotions. Getting involved can be a powerful tool for managing fear. Ask yourself how you can contribute to making the world a better place and the changes you think will create a brighter future. Print or share this flyer.
