I weaved camouflage nets at my parish and also listened to many lectures on crisis consultation with the goal of learning better how to advise people. I was a little worried about taking on this work, since my path in psychology started fairly recently. I didn’t want to harm others, so at first I want to add to my supply of knowledge. Now I have to spend a lot of time with my children and with relatives, since all the adults in our family continue to work in Ukraine, and day-care centers are not operating. I have to stay in the rear and, unfortunately, I have to refuse many wonderful volunteer projects. But I’m still actively involved in various prayer vigils, to support our soldiers with prayer. I’ve received many testimonies that our men feel this and I devote about three hours a day to prayer.
Why am I involved? It’s my duty as a citizen of Ukraine and because of a feeling of great gratitude to our defenders, I want very much to help them, however I can. I try to sleep. I go to bed no later than 11:00 p.m. I drink lots of liquids. I pray when I have a free minute. When there’s an opportunity, I try to take the kids for a walk in the fresh air.
I very much want to actively volunteer in the field of psychological consulting. I’ll help renew our country and work so that we have the possibility to re-build everything that the enemy has destroyed.
