Others of us have lost gigs, jobs, and the ability to celebrate life’s milestones such as birthdays, graduations and weddings. Our routines and daily lives have been disrupted and we have lost our sense of normal. This all adds up to a profound sense of loss and grief.
We are in this together. We are each experiencing grief for what is unique and meaningful to us. We are experiencing a collective grief as a culture and as a nation. We all feel grief about what may come just around the corner.
Feelings of anxiety, anger, stress, sadness, fatigue and fear are all normal in these times. It is okay to let yourself experience them, but not to immerse yourself in them.
