“It’s like reality isn’t reality right now.” Nonetheless, this is reality. Don’t argue with reality. You’ll lose. But only 100% of the time. 🙂 Not that this is easy. Not at all.
We’ve all been dealt a difficult hand right now. Some more difficult than others. Some waaaaaay more. For all of us it is reality, and how we deal with it can make all the difference for us and those around us.
Nothing ever goes wrong in life; Hashem has His plans and ways. One way of phrasing it is: Everything happens FOR me, not to me. It is worthwhile to look at your options given the current reality. “What are some possibilities in this?” “What is right in this situation?” Family time. Opportunities to reach out to people. Foster your creativity. Try new ventures.
It is possible to be confused, grieving, hurt, disappointed and to also rebound, move forward, adapt. (Humans are complex and resilient like that.)
