Mental Moment w/ Money: Unsure about if you have experienced a trauma? Money has a 4-point checklist that you might find helpful.
Are you having intrusive thoughts/flashbacks about it?
Are you spending time trying to avoid things that remind you of it?
Has the way you thought about yourself been negatively impacted by it?
Do you experience extreme emotions or no emotions when talking about it?
If you were able to answer yes to all of these, you have probably experienced something traumatic. You are not your trauma! We can all get free from things that have hurt us. Naming them is the first step <3
Word: “Pinkwashing” Have you heard this phrase used? What does it have to do with Creating Change? How can we stand in solidarity with LGBTQ Palestinians? Nikeeta breaks down the answers to these questions and much more.
