STOP TELLING ME WHAT TO DO!!
“You *MUST* do this morning routine.”
“Just be positive! You choose how you feel. Do *this*!”
“Now is not the time to be negative.” 🤬
I’m not sure about you, but I’ve noticed a number of people telling us what we *should be doing*.
I’m generally a fairly positive person, but I will never force positivity on anyone… and at a time like this, people showing toxic positivity is really starting to piss me off.
If people want to sit in their bubble pretending nothing is happened, pretending covid-19 isn't impacting people, pretending they *know* what’s going on, pretending life is *fine* and we just need to stay “positive” – go for it. But don’t push your agenda onto me, or anyone else for that matter.
My emotions come and go like waves at the moment.
One day I’m awesome, the next day I’m anxious.
One day I’m flat and the next I’m full of energy.
Coronavirus is going to impact all of us differently, and how we are feeling will vary depending on what information we are consuming, who we are spending time with (virtually of course) and how we are choosing to take care of ourselves.
I completely get that everyone is different. Everyone has a different way of looking after themselves and a different way of dealing with adversity.
I have a pretty solid morning routine, but it changes each day.
