Words matter

Words matter. Try saying, “I get to stay home and be safe,” rather than, “I have to stay home,” or, “I am lucky that people care about me enough to not come close to me so I stay safe,” rather than, “I hate that people will not come near me.” I know that it’s hard, especially for people who crave the nearness of others, but right now it is the safe way to be. Changing your mindset may help.
