This applies now, as we come to terms with living in lock down the past few months, and the impact on our lives.
Fortunately for some people it has been a blessing, the opportunity to have time with their family and even get some rest themselves from their busy busy life. But there is also the question of "what now", as life does start to resume again, how to keep this family connection and also how to make sure life doesn't go back into busy busy busy and forget all the valuable lessons learned.
After the trauma is over, or as it eases now, this is when all the suppressed emotions can come flooding to the surface. All the feeling you had to push away to cope, all the fear, worry, sadness, anger, need to come out, and need to be released. At the time you couldn't even acknowledge how hard and difficult it was, how painful it was, because you needed to cope. Now you stand back and see it all.
