As much as we all want to live these perfect socially-distant lives right now, it’s just impossible, and you have to give yourself some grace and leeway.
We’re not on holiday; this isn’t “time off.”
It’s a global crisis.
If you watch the news and it makes you cry, or it makes you sad, anxious, upset, angry, frustrated, or depressed, that’s the most normal thing you could feel right now; allow yourself to feel those feelings first and foremost.
And something to remember:
“Your life is going to be better than you’ll ever imagine and harder than you know. All of it is temporary. All of it is worth it. Go forward. And stand up straight*.” – Nora McInery.
*No word of a lie, I sat up straighter as I typed those last 4 words. 🙂
