Re: Just need to talk
hey @Saltwaterdreamtime sorry I have been MIA for a day. I'm glad to hear that your mentor's family is ok!
As @DirtWitch and @missep have said - it can be really hard to feel like you don't have a voice on important matters especially when it comes to family but it is also important to take care of yourself while you're feeling down. I know that you said on a different thread that you love surfing and it can really help you to clear your head, that's such an awesome way to practice self care! Could you take some time out to maybe go for a surf or do something else you enjoy?
When things are happening in my family I personally find it reassuring to catch up with my cousins and just have a yarn with them/ reminisce on our childhood - similar to your thread 'funny stories'! It makes me happy because I remember that at the end of the day we've always had each other and will always be able to have fun when we are together. It can be a great way to remind them how much you love them too which I'm sure your siblings would love to hear if they are going through a rough time at the moment Is this something you could do with your siblings?
Talk to you soon
