Sometimes it’s hard to gauge effectively and objectively how I’m really doing.
Living inside my own head often obscures tell-tale signs that maybe I’m not coping as well as I think I am.
So I depend on feedback from friends and family as an early warning safety system.
But now many of us are physically isolated from others who might otherwise help us discern when we need help. A heart can fall fast into a deep pit of despair without realizing it.
A friend recently shared this infographic and I love it!
It’s an objective (though not exhaustive!) checklist anyone can use to determine if they are slipping into unhealthy or potentially harmful behaviors, attitudes and thought patterns.
I wanted to share it with my fellow broken-hearted sojourners as a tool.
Please be honest with yourself even if you can’t be honest with others.
And if you find that you are closer to the red than the green, let me (or SOMEONE) know!
You may be isolated but you are NOT alone!
You are irreplaceable. ❤
