I would like my life back…

This issue of Viva 70 looks at our different responses to the upheavals caused by the Corona virus. We’re blessed to have been gifted this lovely piece from Inge who lives in Nova Scotia, Canada and she was in the US earlier this year. She echoes the words so many of us may be feeling.
….many years ago before my former husband and I parted amicably we were in couples therapy. Toward the end of therapy I was feeling anxious and frightened of the unknown, like am I making wise decisions, what will my future look like, how will I manage my finances, when I said to my therapist “I just want my life back”. She startled me when she said “Inge, this is your life – there is no back. Even if you do not part, your life will not be what it was”
Fast forward a couple of decades and then some, part of me “wants my life back” as it was just three months ago. Now, like all those decades ago, this is my life and I need to make the necessary adjustments.
