We all use certain tactics to keep ourselves safe.

As COVID has made it acceptable and necessary to have physical barriers between people, we have also seen the emotional barriers too.

These invisible walls are not the answer. We must forget the armoured hearts of the past.

Be brave enough to allow the real you to shine through. Admit your true feelings. You are allowed be feel fragile and overwhelmed. You are allowed to feel happy. It is ok to demand real relationships and honesty from those around you.

You don’t have to hide yourself anymore.

Self coaching via online resources, real friends, experiencing nature, daily journaling, deep breathing, silent meditation, adaptive exercise, good nutrition… These positive habits will keep you mentally healthy while allowing the rest of the world to see who you truly are.

Let your truth be your courage in this new world.

The real you is ok.
