The last few months, I’ve been curiously observing how people are navigating their new realities due to the Coronavirus. Being a single mom during the best of times is difficult. Being a single mom surviving the Coronavirus can feel nearly impossible.
As a single mom with my own small business, I find myself oscillating between a place of gripping fear and amazing gratitude. Sometimes this shift happens in a week’s time, and sometimes it happens within a day. What I’ve learned about myself through my own coach (thank you, Kathy) is that when I feel most vulnerable, I easily turn to a place of fear. My friend, anxiety, has always been along for the ride.
Living in these unprecedented times as a single mama can be frightening, especially from a financial perspective. Hearing on the news about the financial forecast and knowing millions of people are losing their jobs is terrifying. It’s no wonder why I’ve started binge-watching the show “Hoarders” on Netflix. The sense of wanting to hold on tight to what you’ve got and not share like a spoiled toddler is real. Well, it’s real for me. And I kind of hate it.
My values of abundance, gratitude, and love over fear are ones I try to lead my life by. But being a single mom surviving the Coronavirus, it’s a constant battle with my worst-case-scenario fears and sometimes the war on my anxiety feels never-ending.
So, how can you effectively deal with your fears and anxiety during these times? Here are some tips that have helped me:
