Yesterday (23 March 2021) was a year since England entered the first lockdown. It is strange how fast time can feel like it has flown by but also dragged on. Perception of time does, to me, seem linked to positives and negatives in our lives.
I am not going to delve too deeply into anything today. Here in the UK we are largely still under lockdown measures. In 12 months there has been so much loss, grief, pain and disruption. Most of us have been effected by the pandemic in one way or another.
I’ll take this time to honour those who are not with us anymore, and to offer my condolences to anyone who has lost a loved one.
If you are affected or triggered by the passing of this anniversary, please do not suffer in silence. There are lots of support resources and organisations out there. Reach out to a friend, or a mental health first aider. Or you could explore self help techniques. There is so much support available.
I too do not feel great today, I’m following the advice and support from a close friend – one step at a time.
We’re all in this together.
