We're rebuilding our lives form COVID one day at a time.
Safe or not, out we come! But it's not quite the same. It's like Noah after the flood or me, when I had hepatitis in the 5th grade.
It's a special day, the day we remember those who gave us life. For those who have lost their mothers recently, the day is especially poignant.
The problem with all this isolation is that we are neurologically hard-wired for social connection, for touch, for communal support. Acknowledging that we're missing these essential social pieces lets us take the first step toward self compassion.
