The anxiety is real. Accept and move on.

Grieving for a changed world is perfectly normal

Anger. Frustration. Anxiety. Fear. Sadness. You’ve likely gone through these emotions — indeed, through an emotional rollercoaster — at some point during recovery. But this time is undeniably different. We are collectively grieving, and this grief threatens to derail even the most-resilient among us.

All these emotions are normal. Accept them rather than fighting. Allow yourself to grieve for a changed world. You don’t have any power over over what’s happening on the outside but you can choose how to respond. Find a balance between exploring your feelings and calming yourself by coming back into the present moment.

Let go of what you can’t control. Remember that even this new normal is temporary — and  this, too, you can overcome.
