We all cope differently; some of us may ‘cope’ the same, or have more than one way of coping.
It could be through talking, having a quiet moment to yourself, praying, or reading some a type of scripture. We could go for a run, re-watch movies we’ve seen, read a book or go from watching your favourite YouTube videos, to consuming clips that are unrelated to your life.
Maybe you need to vent. You’re angry with what you see, you’re tired of what you see, so you voice your frustrations. You may want to add your 2 cents, be on the front-line or show your support the best way you know-how, with the racial injustices you see. You might be flicking from one channel to the other – you might be tired of the news, you might have found a balance between the two.
You might take a trip – you may need a trip. It might only be an hour away. It might be work that’s keeping you, you’re discovering who you are or your talents maybe soon, you’ll be the boss the point is; we all need an escape.
If it’s working, then you’re coping.
