does anyone else feel blurry?
time is moving at such a weird pace
lockdowns suck, i hear u all, Rx and thinking of u EM .
ive never felt so lonely, and i haven't hugged anyone for a month
it does help me to think of what i do have, and i'm grateful to those who have gently pointed me to do that
i have safety and clothes and shops and i can still go out and walk in the park and find what i need in stores,
i'm blessed also to have choices, to live in this country where we can choose and have rights, and i'm blessed to know how to ask for what i need.
i do worry about all that is suppressed sometimes, all the tears ppl can't cry, because we want to be strong for each other.
ppl always say that in melbourne we should be used to lockdowns by now, we've done it before.
but from those i speak to, before was different. we felt we would get through it if we locked down quick and fast, we had a common goal and were egging each other on. one year later with things the same or maybe worse, we feel flat and hurt.
so although we got through it before, it's not the same situation.
i'd like to think though, much has improved since last time.
weve learnt along th way!!
the best for me that i've learnt lately is not to bottle it up. i have had renewed fears lately about covid and have sought support from my friends. As EM also remnided me earlier with her intuitive care and kindness, we can't do it on our own.
As times get tougher, I need people more.
There is a lot of pressure on some of us right now, and it is so tough! it's talking through it here and IRL that is getting me through it. Lots of ppl have found some nifty ways of coping which i'm intrigued by. sorry and listening to those who have also had enough.. what a traumatic time... sending hugs and virtual care packages, with all ur favourite treats
