You Are Allowed to Feel Both Joy and Grief in This Time

I’m hearing it every day.

I’ve lost my joy.”
“I’m barely hanging onto my hope.”
“This is all too much.”
“Can this all just be over?”

I hear you loud and clear, friend.

And I’ve thought every one of those thoughts too in the last few months. I’m guessing that probably most people have.

I’m going to share a reminder that so many of us need, and that so many friends I’ve talked to have said helped them.

Joy and struggle can coexist. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. So often I think we fall into the mindset of believing we are only allowed to feel one. But truth is we are capable of feeling more than one emotion at a time.
