It is very important to first acknowledge and accept that our anxiety or depression or whatever we are experiencing is strong and hard to tolerate.
It is perfectly alright to share that these emotions exist because we prepared and expected for something very different than what we presently have. I would even go a step farther to acknowledge the grief and loss at what we all expected this year to bring for us. Grief and loss often bring cycles of anger, sadness, and depression before we arrive at a place of acceptance.
Each expected thing that we lose or is taken away from us can bring about another cycle of grief and loss. All of this is hard, and darker moments in this cycle can lead us to either judge our feelings or to be unkind and unforgiving of ourselves.
