Sometimes we just need a hug and a reminder it’s going to be okay and it’s just a bad day over being dismissive of our feels. Let people vent. Let people talk it out without dismissing where they are at in a moment. I know personally I’m strong every day for my household of two. Some folks can’t handle stress or crisis. I struggle with it myself but I am discovering I am much more calm in a crisis than I realized. Years of practice I guess. I have to pick up the slack a lot and be a therapist/crisis manager every single day here. It’s a lot. It catches up to you having to be the strong one all the time. A week ago I had to put out a “fire” here when someone started talking about having to move and abandoning the heavy furniture we wouldn’t be able to move ourselves. During a pandemic. The idea scared the crap out of me and I had to take a moment to lose it in my closet. It was not a clear thinking idea thrown at me and I had to take a moment to recover from that bat to the face. But I did. And I do. And I will. But I need a moment. We all do. Just let people talk it out.
