Racism occurs in everyday microaggressions that deny people of color access to resources, power, and even basic survival needs based solely on the color of their skin. Racism can be insidious, like suffering “death by a thousand cuts” or it can be more traumatic and sudden. Regardless, fighting racism can affect you in many ways, including:
- Getting poor quality sleep
- Feeling edgy and irritated
- Needing to disconnect from the news cycle and society
- Causing you to question your most important values
- Upsetting your relationships with your children, parents, friends, or partners
If you can relate to the experiences described above, there is hope. Through connecting with a therapist you can trust, we can navigate through the process of healing together.
