Your feelings are valid

It can be hard to remember sometimes, but whatever you’re feeling, it’s valid. Yes, we’re all traversing the same stormy sea, but we are not in the same boat. Some of us have yachts and some are stuck on a pool lilo with a puncture. You might appear to be comfortable at home while others are struggling alone, but that doesn’t negate how you feel. 

Don’t compare yourself or your situation to others. Just because one person seems to be coping with the current homeschooling situation, that doesn’t means that you aren’t allowed to struggle. It works the other way too, if you’re having a lovely time exploring nature with your little ones, you don’t have to been guilty for sharing your joy. Feel what you feel. Accept and express those emotions and seek help if you need it. Lend a hand to others and accept their feelings too. Even if your emotions seem irrational or unreasonable or extreme, accept them and feel them. Scream, shout, cry, run, jump, whatever. You are allowed to feel. You do not have to explain why you feel that way. You do not have to repress those feelings. Your feelings matter. Your feelings are valid.
