Connecting with several domestic violence & homelessness charities/organisations, to provide my part in helping share with people in so much need. Donating non perishable items I purchase weekly.
I realise this, plus volunteering, answering emails for people reaching out who have suffered abuse, is enough. And I keep in mind much needed balance in my life too.
I understand the need for community. I understand helping others because ‘they’ need help – not for my own needs. I understand empathy for people enduring what I have not personally endured.
I understand modelling all this for my children and including them in conversation about this, to an age appropriate level. I take my role of a parent modelling what’s needed in this world, seriously.
People can only model what they wish to see more of in this world.
