This is artwork by one of my children done during Covid. I remember the day they brought it to me. It really struck me in its powerful vulnerability. It was important for them to show it to me, and I was carefully trying to find the right words in my pause to honor the deep feeling work that was done here.
For one, pausing to take the time to go this deep is most definitely difficult for anyone. But then to share it with another is on an entirely different emotional level. The first thing I recognized was that these feelings were true for me as well in this moment. It reminded me of my personal vulnerability and how to reach out to others in that time.
While the pandemic is over, the lessons learned will continue to follow us. And even more telling, the emotions we walked through that time are still as real as if we were back in that loneliness.
So for today, take a moment to look at your feelings. Ask yourself how you take care of your emotions and well-being around those emotions. And, when all is said and done in the day...reach out to someone.
