I know how hard it is, so often, to go about a “normal” day when everything else is churning. How to have a conversation? How to show up when you have to? Sometimes there’s a choice, but so often there isn’t.
Even those of us gifted with the ability to compartmentalize have days when it’s just too much. All I can say is show up as best you can, and don’t be afraid to ask for space, to keep quiet, to go within so that you can otherwise remain standing.
