Sometimes I think I should feel a way different than I do.
I’m down. Well, I will think, you should be happy – you are so fortunate compared to X.
However, while it’s good to remember how fortunate we may be, it’s probable that I should honor what I’m feeling. Yes, and. I can feel the way I’m feeling and allow it, while simultaneously recognizing the bigger picture without needing to change it.
Maybe this will help us as we think about the holidays that may be different this year than last…
