My emotions are all over the place, but outwardly I can't show anything. I just sit in silence. What should I do?

When in doubt, start journaling and see what comes out.
You’re not really sitting in silence.
Your self has a lot to say, take a listen “in” and you may be surprised what comes out.
10 mins of morning meditation with Gabby Bernstein was very helpful. It allowed me to clear out the noise before 10 mins of morning journaling. These 2 steps have helped me connect to myself, my thoughts and my emotions. I also started using BetterHelp and have a new counselor that I really align with.
Each of us are different & the same. You are brave enough to post it here, that’s good self-care. Keep being kind to yourself.

I mean this not in a sarcastic way but truthfully, speak with a professional. I doubt anyone in the fishbowl is qualified to provide what’s in all likelihood a necessary medical opinion, so it’s probably more prudent to start with your general physician and get a referral if need be.

This. Asking here is a good first step - and you’ll notice nobody is shaming you (saying only b/c perceived shame is a reason lots of people don’t ask for help).

Now go ask a qualified professional in the real world. Telehealth makes things accessible if you don’t have in-person options where you live. Good luck.

For the past few months, people have been praising police officers and other front line workers. But now, a sudden turn of events.

There is a problem, but let’s not criminalize the heroic police officers for the racist acts of some individuals. The best solution, in my opinion, is that we need to specify the problem and resolve it by appropriate action on those individuals. That officer needs to be tried in court for murder to provide justice for what he did. But let’s not punish every officer.
