‘Wanted: ‘That’ mom friend. My lonely hands are out-stretched, just waiting for you to take them.’: Mom urges ‘I hope we can soon stop the looking, together’

“The one who I can call at any hour of the night, because both our families are wide awake anyhow. That friend who sends memes of familiar frustrations, and follows up with ‘We got this,’ and ‘I’m always here.’ The friend who overcasts the heavy, uneducated opinions of others with her kindness.”

‘I see the ‘someone’s sleeping on the couch tonight’ memes. I hear, ‘The more you fight, the more passionate you are.’ It doesn’t feel normal, because it isn’t.’: Woman urges ‘normalize healthy, empathy-based love’

“This isn’t what marriage should look like. In a world where half don’t make it, be different. This life has more than enough for us to fight against, without us fighting our partner. No matter how many movies and memes make it look funny.”

‘Your colleague that keeps sharing memes, making light of the situation? They’re scared, grounding themselves through humor.’: Woman says ‘social distancing doesn’t mean turning our backs on one another’

“That mom upset about the playground closing? Those 30 minutes re-energized her. Now, she doesn’t know how she’ll make it through the day. The father with the overflowing cart? He’s not hoarding. He’s picking up groceries for his elderly mom and sick neighbor. We understand the importance of staying home, but we don’t understand what others are going through.”
