Community Conflict and Your Mental Health

By E.Pritchett,MD

 

Ecc. 7:7 “Surely oppression makes a wise man mad and a gift destroys the heart”

 

We are living in difficult times. Even when the victim is not your family, the skin, heart and life connections that we have when a black man or woman is openly murdered, ambushed, or senselessly killed, makes us all highly affected.

Emotions are elevated, fear and anger are activated, and many communities are on fire.

What do we tell our children and when do we tell them? The questions, the feelings, the unrest affects us all.

We cannot underestimate the impact on our

soul (thoughts,feelings,will).

Many of us are traumatized.

Some of the signs of trauma.

1. Shock/ numbness

2. Withdrawal from others

3. Sadness, crying

4. Excessive anger

5. Confusion helplessness

6. Agitation/ irritability

These feelings may come and go or cycle for hours or days. We must help each other through the crisis and to healthful change.

Coping with Community Conflict

Believers begin with prayer. Pray that the eyes of your understanding be opened.

1. Recognize and name your feelings.

2. Acknowledge your feelings with trusted friends and Family.

3. Listen to others and validate their feelings.

4. Do not rush to judge those acting in ways you

would not. Focus on your thoughts, needs

and actions.

5. Decide what you can do and do it.

We may not all be able or want to march, but

we can pray, babysit for a protester, organize a

voters drive check on our elders.

6. Think about what you say and how you say it

You can express your true feelings with an

attitude of power, love, and sound mind.

7. Take a break from the news/ social media.

8. Use available therapy/ counseling resources.

9. Pray- your soul matters.

It is always a time waste if you are doing your assignment by yourself because the kind of efforts the expert will put will be of the next level and it will be difficult for you to put that effort, so rather than wasting your time in this you should hire Civil engineering assignment help so that you can relax when you feel that the assignment is tough in nature because you can handle your assignment to the assignment writers and then they will take care of this.
