How Can I Overcome the State of Distress When I See the Suffering of Children in Palestine?

When I see the suffering of children in Palestine, my heart is deeply moved and torn apart. They innocently endure the hardships brought by war and conflict, losing the carefree childhood that should have been theirs.

They face severe challenges such as food scarcity, limited access to healthcare, and disrupted education.

These children deserve the same rights as any other child, yet fate forces them to grow up in adversity, which deeply saddens me.

How Can I Overcome the State of Distress When I See the Suffering of Children in Palestine

Faced with this distressing reality, I have tried some methods to help myself overcome the pain. Here are my personal experiences and coping strategies:

1.Ignoring relevant news coverage

After prolonged exposure to news about the Palestinian conflict, my anguish and anxiety reached a breaking point. Therefore, I made the decision to completely shut off the news and stop following related reports. This doesn’t mean that I don’t care; sometimes, for the well-being of myself and my family, I have to do this.

I started seeking alternative ways to alleviate the anxiety and stress at night. I found that listening to soothing music or guided meditation helped me relax my body and mind, allowing me to find a sense of peace amidst the darkness.

2.Self-comfort: These reports are sensationalized

When confronted with the suffering of Palestinian children, I try to mitigate the pain within myself through self-comfort. I tell myself that these reports may only represent a fraction of the true situation, and that there are also many people silently working to bring hope and change to them.

In reality, we are in the midst of a “fog of war,” where both sides engage in extensive propaganda to make the world believe that their stance is right.

3.Engaging in charity and relief organizations

I proactively sought out and got involved in some charity and relief organizations to provide support and assistance to the suffering children in Palestine. Through donations, volunteering, and advocacy, I hope to bring about tangible improvements and hope for them. This active engagement makes me feel like I am making a contribution to their well-being, thus alleviating the feeling of distress.

4.Calling for an end to the war

Although individual power is limited, I believe that everyone can raise their voice for peace. Utilizing my social media platforms and personal influence, I call for an end to the war. I aim to raise awareness and inspire more people to take action, advocating for a better future for the suffering children in Palestine.

5.Praying, if you have a religious belief

If you have a religious belief, prayer can provide solace and a source of strength for the soul. I believe that prayer can grant me inner peace and comfort, while also serving as a way to express care and blessings for the suffering children.
