Let’s talk about loss. I would say the majority of the planet right now is experiencing loss in a variety of different ways, right? Loss of their independence, loss of their jobs, loss of their connection to their families or their friends, loss of their ability to be out in the world, loss of their identity because they’re not working – so now they don’t know who they are, loss of relationships – many people have been challenged to maintain relationships during this time, loss of even some of people’s beliefs – like their faith … loss all over the place.
If we dig in just a little bit more, I would say that we’re grieving. We’re grieving the losses.
So, we’ve experienced the loss. We felt the loss and now people are having grief, right?
You’re experiencing the grief from the loss and grief shows up in a lot of different ways for different people.
One of those ways is anger. One of those ways is shutting down or disconnecting. One of those ways is to deny it or ignore it or pretend that it doesn’t exist. And, eventually, we come around to acceptance and oftentimes come back full circle into a place of appreciation. But that isn’t always like in a week or in a month even – sometimes it’s in a decade. I don’t think there has to be a right and wrong amount of time for that process to happen. But it is important for those things to happen.
