Today, being Dr. Martin Luther King’s day, to make possible his dream of unity, of equality, and being just there for each other, reach out to your colleagues to connect, acknowledge, and find a way into one another’s heart.
Share your fears and concerns authentically. Your feelings are important, and sharing them will help reduce stress and anxiety and pull you closer in this difficult time.
Here is a phrase that might help you get the conversation started:
“I am feeling sad and worried about what is going on. Knowing that I have colleagues like you who I care about and who care about me helps me not to feel alone.”
Making feelings explicit helps regulate our emotions and creates space to be there for each other in times of need.
With gratitude and care,
