Implied shoulds

I’ve backed away from a lot of social media type things, but I’m on there enough to see a lot of implied shoulds lately. You know those, right? Someone is recommending something they do and the implication is you should do it too, based on wording and tone. I often think of them like the winky emoji that people put at the end of a condescending tweet to someone. It’s a backhanded way of trying to make it seem like they aren’t being condescending. But in this tense time, whatever you have to do to take care of yourself in the midst of what’s going on in the world, the country you live in, your community, or your life; that’s all OK. Self care is never wrong and we all do it differently.
