I have found myself increasingly annoyed by people trying to ascribe meaning to the pandemic we are currently experiencing. This distaste rises in me like bile, and I can’t get rid of it.
One of the most helpful things I’ve heard in the past couple of weeks is the first episode of Brene Brown’s new podcast, Unlocking Us. It was useful because I have been navigating a few personal challenging first times, and the podcast gave me some tools to help manage them.
It’s hard to shut down – even sometimes in sleep. It can be tough to let go of things mid-process, challenging to say, “it’s enough for today” or “for this week” and believe it. What is it about letting go that is so hard? What is it about leaving things undone that rattles us?
