Here’s the thing. A day is a day. It’s one day of the year. Whether there is pressure on the day or not, on how you should act or not, it’s still just one day.
And guess who’s the arbiter of your feelings? You are. You get to take control of how you feel. The more time you spend in the mainstream media, the more swayed you will become.
Mother’s Day is a U.S. holiday. There will always be another way of seeing the world. In fact, one guy told me on Twitter that today is Father’s Day in Romania. Mother’s Day in one part of the world and Father’s Day in another. Ying and yang. Two sides of the emotional sphere.
Whatever is happened in your society, you exist at the level of one. You are a human being with a unique story and mindset.
What you do with your mindset will affect your story–and vice versa.
Accept what people call the day, and then decide for yourself.
It’s how you’ll find your own meaning.
It’s how you’ll find mental health in a world that keeps on spinning.
