Today I realised that what I am feeling is deeply sad.
It actually took a bit of thinking to realise that sadness is my dominant emotion right now. Just naming it has somehow been helpful. I am very much a 'glass half full' kind of person and if I feel a bit down can usually talk myself out of it, but this sadness can't be talked away and no amount of distracting activity seems to assuage it.
Like grief perhaps, I just have to learn to live alongside it.
I am sad for all the people who are suffering, and who will suffer, and whomI feel I should be helping.
It's an emotional time - do you know what your feelings are? Have you named them? Would it help?
