San Bernardino, Orlando, Dallas, Missouri, Baton Rouge……STOP!... I Can’t Take it NO MORE………….Protect


As I woke up this morning to my Facebook feed and saw the headlines of yet another shooting that involved police I said to myself “Not Again”. As I scrolled down and saw one after another of postings of the news of another family possibly dealing with the lost of a love one, I said again to myself ,“NOT AGAIN”.

I moved pass them quickly thinking to myself when will the traumatic events end….that is when they started. Thoughts started to swirl in my head of wondering if this would this truly stop. Would I spend the rest of my life being re-traumatized by these disturbing images? Would I have to keep looking over my shoulder thinking, “ Am I Next”? Or worrying about my husband’s safety every time he goes out and worrying that he will get profiled? My imagination starts racing and I start to get nervous and then IT HITS ME… this is NOT Helping me. This is bad for my Mental State.

I am very aware that there is hate in the world however, being reminded of this every day does not help my mental state. Postings individuals put to “spread awareness” of the most recent shooting does not help my mental state. Talking about what has happened with relatives and love ones not only gets me upset but it DOES NOT help My Mental State. The blatant hate and decisions that are being made due to fear and hate, which causes others to make STUPID decisions, DOES NOT HELP MY Mental State.

ALL THIS SH** DOES NOT HELP MY MENTAL STATE.

SO,…Who else is going to protect MY Mental State besides ME?

Let me log off of social media…………………………………......To protect my mental state

Let me stop and pray……………………………………………...........To Protect my mental state

Let me continue to live God’s mission for me …………...To Protect My mental state

Let me show love to not only my family but others .....To Protect MY MENTAL STATE

Let me take care of me………………………...............................TO PROTECT MY MENTAL STATE.

Stop re-traumatizing yourself, if you need to disconnect from social media or media period do that. Because continuing to look at the hate, disrespect, pain and ignorance will only traumatize you more and at this time, we know it is there, we know it will continue. So …

WE ALL NEED TO PROTECT OUR MENTAL STATE.
