A Chance To Breathe...
In this “Not Normal” School Year I’m Embracing the Gift of Time

by Grown and Flown | November 20,2020

This morning I was struck with a deep sense of gratitude. As I meandered my way down the hallway in the early morning hours to wake my high schooler for the day, I smiled at the calmness that now fills my home. 

In a normal year, our mornings would be a complete frenzy of activity. Total chaos would rule our day from the moment the 5:00AM alarm on my phone rang until we all finally crawled into our beds at the end of the day. It would be a race against the clock as we scurried around the house each morning trying to get everything done in time for us to leave for the day.

When stress got to be too much for TED Fellow Sangu Delle, he had to confront his own deep prejudice: that men shouldn't take care of their mental health. In a personal talk, Delle shares how he learned to handle anxiety in a society that's uncomfortable with emotions. As he says: "Being honest about how we feel doesn't make us weak -- it makes us human."

This talk strikes very close to home as Sangu weaves together the ideas of toxic masculinity and the patriarchal African culture. It is an amazing and important video.

Sangu Delle is an entrepreneur and clean water activist. A TED Fellow who hails from Ghana, he sees incredible potential in the African economy

Sometimes we struggle with conflicting emotions, rather than trying to analyze and fix them maybe it’s better to sit in them and learn from them...
