#BeKind21: Unlock the Black Boxes

Today’s #BeKind21 message is from BLKBX Project.

This generation of young people is hopeful, engaged, and ready to act in support of their own and their loved ones’ mental wellness. They are also being faced with overlapping and ongoing global crises affecting their mental health. The BLKBX Project aims to unlock those “black boxes” that many of the teenagers in our lives keep deeply hidden. 

Finding a path toward healing requires each of us to unlock thoughts, feelings, and secrets in non-intimidating environments. It’s important to provide safe spaces that connect teenagers with resources for support on their own terms and in their own time, remind them they’re not alone, and encourage them to choose how to forge their own path. 

Your kindness challenge today: Practice a mindfulness exercise like these and spend intentional time with yourself, working to unlock the black boxes and live in truth and affirmation. 

In Kindness,

BLKBX Project
