Dear Health Care Professional,
I thank you for your support during such difficult times. In an abnormal situation like this, it is essential for us to look out for each other.
While we comfort other people, it is important to look out for our own mental health as well.
Perhaps, it will take time for us to get accustomed to the clouds of anxiety around COVID-19.
And while you try to soothe the anxieties of others, there might be some brewing in your own mind.
For times like these, I thank you.
For staying tough.
For trying to figure it out.
Thank you for your immense support and resilience.
Thank you for working it out, strongly.
And, thank you if you realised that you weren’t strong after all.
That’s okay too.
You can reach out to a fellow professional if you don’t feel well.
We are here for each other.
Another Smile in Gratitude
