I’m still feeling under the weather, so this will be another short post.
Leading into the holidays, I was struggling particularly hard to keep everything together – my work obligations, chores at home, keeping in touch with loved ones.
The sum weight of 2020 made it difficult for me to give proper attention to details I normally care for most. The same weight settled on me yesterday evening and today.
The focus of my post today is not on the weight of those feelings but more on the observation of how often I’m seeing them reflected in others around me, as well. And how that observation has brought me some semblance of peace.
There’s a saying I very much dislike – misery loves company. Let me be clear, that’s not what I mean. I do not wish hardship or stress on anyone.
However, many of us, myself included, often feel alone in our difficulties. In that sense of isolation, we wonder what’s wrong with us? Why can’t we just get it together?
If that’s you right now, please know that you’re not alone. Let that knowledge give you peace. You, I, and all of us, have the capacity to work through everything that pains us.
If this IS you, and you think it could help to talk with someone, please email me. I would like to help how I can.
