Our Collective Grief vs. My Personal Grief
This week's guest blog comes from Katie Fledderman. When I read her powerful and deeply honest words discussing the battles she has faced I knew her words would speak to everyone. She reminds us that our most courageous self lies within our most vulnerable self.
A few weeks ago, before things had reached fever pitch with COVID for the second time in eight months, a few of us were at a neighbor’s house for very small, socially distant, outdoor gathering. One of my neighbors said, “2020 is one of the top five worst years of my life.” I immediately, and matter of factly responded, “2020 is the worst year of my life,” but I did not elaborate. Some of my neighbors knew what I was alluding to, though likely not the depths to which I’ve been affected.
