The past six months have been chaotic, uncertain, and stressful. Our lives have changed in ways we never anticipated. And this global pandemic has undeniably taken a destructive toll on our mental, emotional and interpersonal well-being, with some of us being unable to cope with the intense myriad of emotions we have been experiencing, especially as many of us have to work from home and balance multiple roles and identities in this new normal.
