Is it just me or has the past week or so been filled with such intensity both in the news and on a more personal level? So many people I know (and so many more I don’t) are really going through some intense times and it makes my heart ache for them. I can so easily recall the feelings and experiences of some of the most sad, difficult and intense times in my own life. I’m not really a fan of the phrase ‘holding space’ but for better or worse, it’s what comes to mind when I think about what I can do in situations where there’s really nothing I can do. So to any of you who are reading this feeling you could use some support, know that I am thinking of you and wishing you comfort and healing.
