I’m mentally exhausted. I’m emotionally exhausted. With everything happening, I’m struggling to stay happy. If I were an anxiety patient, I would be having severe anxiety attacks by now.
From COVID-19 pandemic to this lockdown, it has been not so easy. I’ve been constantly looking for things to keep me busy and happy.
The murder cases happening this period is alarming. When did being black become a crime? Is being black a license to get killed? From Ahmaud Arbery to Breona Taylor to George Floyd and so many others. WE NEED JUSTICE!!
Moving to the in house problem in Nigeria, rape has always been a case that has never received adequate Justice. Victims are killed and the ones lucky to survive are traumatized. My heart goes out to victims who are trying their best to heal and yet still see what’s happening today and get to read disgusting comments from people who have brain issues literally.
- Uwa was a 22 year old reading in a church. She was raped and murdered.
- Jennifer was a 12 year old. She was raped by 11 men
- Tina was 16 year old. She was killed by Nigerian police that were meant to protect her.
I don’t know how we got to this point of inhumane behaviours and brutality. I’ve taken a much needed break from social media for the time being to protect my sanity. My playlist of worship songs have been lifting up my spirit so I’m going to feel better soon.
How are you coping with everything going on and protecting your sanity this period?
