Also realizing how many security issues which are not in our control at the moment are kinda ruling the attitudes of some folks here. which was kinda “we know this is a big deal but uuuuuuugh i have done all i can do atm!”
There’s always room to apologize, add in additional selves care & compassion for things out of your& control, and invite the folk grumpy about things into sessions to try to figure out alternatives, ways to handle it better, etc. if they’re capable of attending.
Also, consider better boundaries to protect folk from external circumstances outside of y’all’s control. We’ll talk more about this in the Empathy & Boundaries week — for example our reparenting center can be used to help filter on behalf of traumaholders & syskids regarding some of the tough stuff adults need to deal with externally.
