We All Need Each Other

Moms, mental health and community in this pandemic

Not leaving forever, just escaping this house, the kids, the work on my laptop, and everything, just for a while.

But I didn’t.

Any moms out there, facing this relentless at home time, I recommend a solo bike ride for a much needed mental boost.

Here’s the best part- when my mood lifted, I was able to lift up my family’s moods too.

If I had stayed home, I would have become frustrated with her too, increasing the dark cloud over the home, and it might have led to everyone yelling.

It all started with my decision to chat with a friend.

Check in on your friends, especially those with kids.

But here is the thing about community- when we get the help we need, we are then able to help others.

We all need someone to lean on.

There is likely someone out there who also needs you, and could use your support.

Be a link, be part of a social chain, because we all need somebody to lean on.
