What am I talking about on Facebook
4 days ago
This picture describes the journey very well. Having faced the initial fight/flight, then being retriggered by how much media i was watching, talking about it, problem solving invading and pushing it to the forefront. It's a much more comfortable place to be, acceptance of what is right now, being mindful of where time and energy is being used and using this experience for positive effect to help keep out of the frantic fear zone ...

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE & SELF ISOLATION DURING COVID-19 CRISIS - PLEASE SHARE THIS POST.
If you, or anyone you know, needs help or support because they are suffering domestic abuse (which doesn't need to be violent to be abusive; please see the link below for what domestic abuse is), please reach out. Isolation can significantly increase the risk of domestic abuse and for many the next few months will be a time of increased danger within their home.
Talking about domestic abuse and what is going on behind your front door can be terrifying. The fear of being hurt, the fear of the unknown, and the fear of what happens to your children can mean you will try to tolerate intolerable behaviour.
We've put together this post with links if you, or a loved one is in need of help.
"If you feel a situation is escalating, move yourself towards an exit and away from rooms that would confine you, and out of a kitchen where there may be more objects to cause you harm. Keep your mobile topped up and charged, and perhaps consider a concealed phone."

It was March 2020 ...
The streets were empty, the shops closed, people couldn't get out.
But spring did not know, and the flowers began to bloom, the sun shone, the birds sang, the swallows would soon arrive, the sky was blue, the morning arrived early.
It was March 2020 ...
Young people had to study online, and find occupations at home, people could no longer go shopping, or go to the hairdresser. Soon there would be no more room in hospitals, and people continued to get sick.
But spring did not know, the time to go to the garden arrived, the grass greened.
It was March 2020 ...
People have been put in lockdown. to protect grandparents, families and children. No more meetings or meals, family celebrations. The fear became real and the days were therefore similar.
But spring did not know, apples, cherry trees and others bloomed, the leaves grew.
People started reading, playing with their families, learning a language, singing on the balcony inviting neighbors to do the same, being supportive and focusing on other values.
People realized the importance of health, of suffering, of this world that had stopped, of the economy that has plummeted.
But spring didn't know. the flowers gave way to the fruit, the birds made their nest, the swallows had arrived.
Then the day of liberation came, people found out on TV, the virus had lost, people took to the streets, sang, cried, kissed their neighbors, without masks or gloves.
And that's when summer came, because spring didn't know. He continued to be there despite everything, despite the virus, fear and death. Because spring didn't know, he taught people the power of life.
Everything's gonna be fine, stay home, protect yourself, and enjoy life.
