HEY everyone I am 16 I am a male and I wanna tell you about my story and its about Covid-19. I don’t have it thank God and I wouldn’t wish it on no one but I was sitting at home yesterday talking to my uncle and my mom told me my aunt had it. Its so heartbreaking cause it ain’t no cure but God I hope she be okay and God bless the people who got it and don’t have it sometimes you gotta put it in His hands and let Him take control Amen.

HELP YOURSELF

Do one thing every single day to take care of your emotional self to ensure that you aren’t letting your concern for your aunt get the best of you. It can be something physical like yoga, walking meditation, or an online exercise class, or something more introspective like a daily bible study, journaling, listening to music or making artwork.
