Today many people were faced with coming to terms with the outcome of the presidential election. It caused a heighten sense of fear, angst, and distrust for some. For others, it caused a sigh of relief because they feel that with this candidate their fears will be heard and their dreams will be realized. If this election has caused fear and uncertainty it is best that you use your support system to air your grievances. It is healthy to start an ongoing dialogue about how we feel and our thoughts on if our needs are getting met by the people that are placed in office to propel our progress as a nation.
This is also the time to connect with others that do not share your views. We learn the most when we open our hearts and minds and allow our humanity instead of fear lead the conversation. I hope that we take this time to learn more about each other and lean on each other for support.
