Sometimes it takes grown ups to point things out to you. If they see you acting differently, they start wondering if your uncomfortable feelings are bothering you.
They might try to talk to you about it. It's important to talk about our feelings. Give it a try. Getting uncomfortable feelings out can make you feel better. Grown ups can't help if they don't know what's wrong.
There are always things out of our control - things we can't do anything about - and that can make us feel uncomfortable. Right now, we can't control what's going on around us or the feelings that happen to us...
...but we can try to control how we cope (or handle) them. It's okay to be mad or sad or disappointed. We want to make sure we cope with those feelings in a safe and healthy way.Running and talking to someone are healthy ways to cope. Running isn't for everyone but it helps me feel better!
So remember when I asked you earlier what you like to do to feel better? Now is a good time to think about that! Make a list or put ideas on small pieces of paper and put them in a bag. You can pull one out to use when you're having a tough time.
Drawing, coloring, listening to music, playing with your pet, calling or Facetiming a friend or relative, writing a letter, going outside, playing a game...and talking to someone, especially if you have a problem, is usually the best way to cope. We need the support of our loved ones right now.I hope you can find ways to help yourself feel better! I miss you all and I am looking forward to being together at school again.We're going to get through this together!
