When you take a bird’s eye view of humans as a species, we’re pretty incredible beings, aren’t we?
Think about it: In the grand scheme of things, we are fragile little ecosystems. We are subject to threat left and right– wars, natural disasters, meteors narrowly missing Earth by a scientific force that is far beyond me, and most recently, a global pandemic– and yet, 𝘸𝘦 𝘴𝘶𝘳𝘷𝘪𝘷𝘦. We adapt. We find alternate pathways, and we continue to stand the test of time.
Despite our undeniable strength, though, we are still humans who need other humans. 𝙒𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙗𝙪𝙞𝙡𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙙𝙤 𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙙 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜𝙨, 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙬𝙚 𝙖𝙧𝙚 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙗𝙪𝙞𝙡𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙙𝙤 𝙩𝙝𝙚𝙢 𝙖𝙡𝙤𝙣𝙚.
In the aftermath of COVID, we are seeing soaring rates of substance abuse, suicide ideation, and isolation. Our physical need for isolation and other responses to the pandemic have taken a toll on all of us.
This degree of universal struggle is something that most of us have never seen in our lifetime, and that can feel daunting or near impossible when you’re in the thick of it. We can know that we possess the ability to heal all we want, but that doesn’t necessarily mean we know how.
