Are you Sad?

This week I have been experiencing the shift from denial, fear, annoyance, and frustration to fear and sadness.  I have conversations with clients, friends, family, doctors, nurses, psychotherapists and more which relays the message that most people are now facing these changes and the losses that have brought into their lives.
How has the coronavirus changed your life?
What losses are you experiencing?
What has changed in your life that you wished it hadn’t?
What changes are you welcoming?
What are your blessings?
What are you grateful for?
I have never experienced being home for 15 days. I never experienced not being with my friends and clients for so long. I feel the loss of socializing, being with my friends and family under the same roof, kissing them, hugging them, and looking at their beautiful eyes.  I feel the loss of sitting in the same room and caring for my clients.  I feel sad that I have lost the freedom to go anywhere as I wished. I feel sad that we have to move away from each other when we are at a grocery store. I feel sad no one rings my home bell to come to my home. I feel sad that I can’t go to the most wonderful restaurants that I like. I feel sad and anxious about financial instability for the foreseeable future. I feel sad and anxious that I lost my safety and security. I feel sad that people take advantage of others. I feel sad to see people have lost their jobs. I feel sad to see sadness and fear of everyone’s heart and face.
I feel grateful that I have a great relationship with my husband and we are sharing quality time together.  I feel grateful that I have amazing friends and family who are all safe and well around the world.  I feel grateful for the technology that has allowed me to contact and share with my clients, friends, family, and society at large through media.  I am truly grateful for zoom, apple, google and many of these people at these companies who are allowing us to have close contact.  I feel grateful and thankful to all the doctors and nurses and hospital workers who are working so hard to keep our loved ones safe and healthy.  I am grateful to see great, compassionate people coming together to help each other. I am blessed to have all of you in my life and I am grateful that I have to opportunity to support and be there for you and people that need it.
Share with me, with someone, anyone.  Please don’t stay isolated.  Connect.
