When faced with difficult and tragic situations, we all tend to search for ways to cope. The reality of things is that our coping mechanisms vary from one person to another. This has been my way of coping…
Tired, angry, burnt out…
All are words that describe how we’ve been feeling and what we’ve been going through. Alive has been my only right way of answering “How are you?” and “how have you been?” That being said, I had to do something about it.
I realized that it’s perfectly okay not to be okay!
I chose to accept that, and I made the decision to take out my frustration on paper – my paper being an electronic one – and used it as my way of coping with our reality.
This is how my “pandemic baby” was born…
Dawn of words: a fancy sounding name, yet, once you actually read the blog posts I’ve written, you’d realize that it’s a pretty simple blog that aims to be a safe place for people who are looking for a safe haven.
How you may ask? By accepting that every feeling is valid. By saying things as they are and being unfiltered. And by possibly using my words to describe how you, amongst others, have been feeling and what you’ve been thinking of.
One of the most emotional posts I’ve written was after an event that we all felt deeply. It was the Beirut port explosion that left many of us struggling. Some took it to the streets and helped with the cleaning and restorations. I personally found no way to feel, other than to write a post about it.
The responses I’ve gotten post after post kept me going. People saw me as relatable and real. And isn’t that what writing is supposed to be?
Not everyone has an eye for writing. But there must be something that helps you to keep moving.
Sharing is caring
At least that’s what they say. I’ve shared with you my therapy. So come on, share with us how you’ve been coping. Perhaps your way might help others who are struggling as well and don’t know how to react!
