It is hard dealing with this situation, and to everyone who is reading this and feeling helpless, I just want to tell you that you are not alone, and it will be better!
Taking care of yourself is something so underrated nowadays. Whether due to a lack of time or due to too much stress in everyday life or for whatever reason, people don’t devote enough time to themselves. While in isolation, I’ve had a lot of time thinking and realizing that actually taking care of myself is one thing that makes me happy. I mean little things that I believe are available to everyone. These little things are actually the ones that help me find myself.

Your final thoughts?

When we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better too. Sometimes, all it takes is a little reminder to boost your spirits and refocus your day.
