Today is November 1, 2020 and the anticipation of this years vote is high. This election season has caused anxiety, worry and suspense. Personally, I can not wait until its over. It has been frustrating to say the least. Many are exhausted by the tactics used to increase turmoil, division and hate that has occurred in the last few years.
My health and wellbeing can not take anymore and I want some calmness. A constant threat of readiness and anxiety is not healthy for anybody and can have an impact on your psyche. We must control our thoughts because they do become things. It can be challenging if you perceive the threat is close. My son stated he becomes anxious every time a policeman is behind him in traffic. This is real for him as it is for many Black males in this country.
Please Vote if you have not, and make your voice heard. If you have, sit back, relax and watch the fire works. We have two days until election and a few months to settle into the results. What ever happens stay well and stay safe. We will get through this, our health and wellness depend on it.
