We See You Struggling. You Aren’t Alone.
I know we usually talk business in our newsletter, but Fred and I have both noticed something in our recent group and individual coaching calls that we felt needed to be addressed. There is no easy way to say it: this sucks. The business challenges suck. The kids homeschooling sucks. The never-ending cooking and cleaning with no end in sight sucks. And every woman we know is getting tired of pretending this is all okay. One of the most important parts of Her Corner is the safe space we create for women to speak honestly about their experiences and right now, we want to be honest about this particular topic.
Especially in this moment, when summer plans are getting cancelled and proposals for what school will look like in the Fall are starting to leak out, we can feel a palpable tension building in our clients. We want you to know you are not alone in feeling all of the emotions – rage, sadness, grief, frustration, even hopelessness.
WE SEE YOU STRUGGLING AND WE WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT WE UNDERSTAND.
We are all feeling this way. We are all struggling to find a way to get through each and every day. And it is 100% okay to admit that sometimes we feel like this might be too much for us to handle. We are lucky to live in a time and place where talking about mental health challenges has become much less stigmatized. If you feel like you could benefit from some sort of intervention, whether that be therapy, counseling, meditation, or even medication, please get the help you need. If you need to block off a day or two to just have some mental health time, please do so. Reach out to friends and family and lean on the support systems you already have.
We know this won’t last forever, but the truth is it isn’t ending anytime soon. The sooner we are honest with ourselves and each other about the challenges we are facing, the sooner we will be able to help each other and find solutions together.
As always, Fred and I are always here to help you, no matter what.
