We haven't talked much about celebrities here on PPP, but I felt compelled to write something regarding a particular incident.
If you haven't been reading much in the way of celebrity news, Johnny Depp has fuled a defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard. For a while, we heard of antics of Mr. Depp and assumed that it was another case of a celebrity being so far from regular life that goes insane, for a lack of a better way to put it. It was a reasonable thought. He wouldn't have been the first, and he won't be the last. What has come out as legitimate evidence could potentially reveal what depths "the love of his life" went to not only to physically injure him, but ruin his professional career. It is a tragic story in development.
But what does that have to do with wellness?
The relationship between genders has always been volatile, but that situation has increased more in the past eight years than I've ever seen. Between the LGBTQ movement and the #meetoo movement, both sides have become increasingly more aggressive in multiple ways; physically, legally, and socially. Everyone at home, regardless of background, feels the tension rising despite some recent legal victories. This is one of many situations where the best self care is something we always promote.
Love your neighbor as yourself.
This post will be a bit of a ramble, but we're getting to it.:D
When we take time, as people, to focus on something other than ourselves, what we find is our own well being is enhanced. That also applies to gender dynamics and the different social changes that are coming with it. Regardless of what you believe/feel, at the heart of it all is caring for one another. Perhaps if more of that was practiced, one less person would've suffered.
