Apologizing isn’t always easy. You’d think it would be, but sometimes you have to apologize for perceived wrongs. So how do you say I’m sorry and mean it?
I've learned that while being stuck at home and kept away from the hustle and bustle of life, self-care doesn't stop just because the world does. Plus, we need it even more right now.
Barely anything in my life has changed, but everything is different now. I think that many of you taking a moment to read my words can relate. Whether you’re out of work or still working, nothing is the same anymore.
We are facing something down that most of us have never been through. Every day something scary pops up on the news, from more infected and more dead to the political turmoil ahead. It’s almost too much to take.
I work from home, have been for years. Because of this, I am used to isolating myself most of the week. There’s a difference between staying home because you want to and staying home because you need to.
As I write this, I am actually on day 16 of officially quarantining to our home. That’s 16 days of not seeing the faces of my friends in person, waving at my lovely neighbors from a distance (the ones I like), avoiding the mailman, and not getting to go to thrift stores, which I am finding is a huge part of my sanity.
