How we feel about ourselves, directly impacts how we interact with others. When we take time to slow down and deeply connect with ourselves, we will find it easier to find satisfaction in relationships with others too.

I have found a few resources that may help if you or someone you know is feeling heightened stress related to DACA, and discuss the role of public stress which could impact any of us.
