We, as humans, are trying to make the most of our situation. Though dire circumstances has confined most us to our homes, we could make lemonade out of our lemons. And fresh baked bread, too. But a terrible thing is happening in the world around us, or in our own personal worlds. Many people are sick or have died. Many people, including ourselves or those we know, have lost their jobs, are struggling to pay rent or keep a shuttered business alive. So many of us are living in
Most of us prefer to rise above difficult situations to encourage and help others. We demand accomplishment and productivity from ourselves. If we are not working our regular job, or if our schedule and tasks have changed radically, we feel what is almost a responsibility to take up a new calling - make masks, take an online class, clean out the garage. But sometimes we must simply allow ourselves to be humbled by a situation that we can't control. To grieve, to not know what to do next. To feel scattered and unfocused.
If you’re feeling like all of this is too much—it’s because it is. Give yourself a break.
