Many of us were taught to stay busy as a way to “deal with grief”. In reality, staying busy is just a distraction technique. If you distract yourself from your grief now, it will be waiting for you when you stop being so busy… But right now, if staying busy is all you know, Do that.
Because of CoVid, many folks are finding themselves home alone with grief that they don’t know how to heal or even how to Be with. If you feel the need to stay busy right now, then do that.
This is a hard time for all of us, it’s not the time to beat yourself up for doing what you know.
And for the rest of us? If you can relax, Do that.
CoVid will end. Life will resume and there will be stuff to do.
Rest while you can.
If you can.
