To keep your mind from going off of the deep end through the multiple crises of 2020, expressing your thoughts is a necessary element. This time is not a time for you to bottle your emotions; this time is a time for you to process how you are feeling.
The best way to express your thoughts clearly is through writing. Writing allows for you to be fully transparent towards yourself and to others. The reason why so many people have had to retract their statements and issue apologies is due to people saying things based upon stereotypical tropes past down to them instead of expressing themselves for the heart.
During this time, focus on how your heart is feeling. Do not suppress how you feel at this time. Write down how you really feel. Do not allow for anyone to manipulate how you feel.
