Take baby steps. Write down the things you’re going to do like shower, moisturize, and de-tangle your hair.
Feel what you feel, but try not to do it alone. If your friends and family are not near, call or text them.
Drink water. Meditate. Pray. Eat.
This was a tough election for many of us. America’s decision to elect Trump is heartbreaking, but it does not tell us anything we did not already know — that is why we fought so hard this election.
One thing it for sure reminds us — your vote DOES matter. The folks who voted for Trump felt unheard so they came out. We must also come out. Feel what you feel today, tomorrow, next week, next month… but do not sit. Keep shaking up your community for the betterment of humanity.
I am disappointed in those who voted for Jill and Gary, but I also understand your frustration with our establishment. I understand what it’s like to not have your life matter. I know, from experience, what it is like to work alongside people who do not respect the decision you made to vote for Bernie Sanders. I understand.
Chins up, everyone.
