“For many of us, the easing of restrictions brings longed-for opportunities – to see friends and family, to travel abroad, or even to return to the office – but these experiences can also trigger our grief,” she says. 

“They can be a reminder of what we lost or what we missed out on, so even happy, much-anticipated experiences like, for example, having drinks with your colleagues on a Friday night, might bring up some feelings of grief and sadness.

“It might be confusing to have mixed feelings about a seemingly happy experience, but it’s perfectly OK to feel happy and sad at the same time.”
