Supportiv has published a new collection of articles to help with the transition from just getting by, to healing and thriving.
With Covid-19 and the racial injustice brought into the light by the Black Lives Matter movement, the world has changed, and there’s no going back. In confronting our discomfort during 2020, we have a choice between coping or healing.
While coping mechanisms help us temporarily manage emotional struggles, healing is the approach we should strive for. Lasting wellbeing and emotional strength requires a continued effort towards healing.
Healing may not be as simple as taking steps to cope, but the reward is worth it. What’s the actual difference between the two, and why should you care? Helena Plater-Zyberk, Supportiv Co-Founder and CEO, explains:
“Coping helps keep things from getting worse. When you cope, your underlying struggle is still there, and it feels like you’re just getting by. Healing addresses the issue head-on to actively make yourself feel better. When you heal, you are taking steps to change your situation or perspective and finding new ways to live, even if it takes longer overall.”
Supportiv’s fresh collection of inspiration and tips includes topics like boundaries, trauma, healthy relationships, and accepting the reality of your situation. The collection features the following titles and more, meant to guide and bolster you through the healing process:
- From Coping To Healing: Making The Transition
- Recover Your Sense Of Self In Order To Heal

Supportiv Co-Founder Pouria Mojabi emphasizes why someone would want to heal, when coping can feel easier:
“Trauma, stress, and toxic relationships are examples of struggles where coping may inadvertently prevent healing. Getting through these kinds of struggles is daunting yet possible through continued effort, and with ongoing support.”
