How do you cope with life by TerriLynne Belisle

How do you cope with life?

Project completed by TerriLynne Belisle

TerriLynne, Age 16

Hello, my name is TerriLynne and I chose the topic of “how do you cope with life” for this Word on the Street because a lot of people I know struggle with mental illness, addictions and their own personal demons

How I cope with life is through listening to music and through photography

 

 

 

Randy, Age 28

Hi, I’m Randy. I’m 28 years old, and I have a few ways I cope with life. One of the ways is through self-care, getting away, spending time by myself just doing something relaxing like reading, or having my coffee in peace. Sometimes, that means I’m doing things that I know are good for me even if it’s not what I feel like doing. For example, just eating right and getting sleep, going to get exercise, and doing physical activity. Also, an important thing is having people around that I know, love, and that care about me. That know me for who I am and just fully accept me and love me no matter what kind of place I’m in and who I feel safe around and that make me feel cared for. It’s really important that people support you.

 

 

Lexi, Age 16

I put myself in an empty room, breathe and write my poetry or keep doing my breathing techniques.
