“I hope you can get back to what needs to be done”

Someone said this, and it is the correct attitude.

In Reeducation it would have been “denial” and inappropriate generally. One should be felled by everything, call in sick, take leave from work, retire.

Reeducation believed in opening veins and draining life out slowly.

That is NOT health. But there was so much discussion about self-care, which meant:

(a) the renunciation of exercise, recreation and general free time in favor of lamentation, and

(b) the renunciation of work, accomplishment, achievement, and financial stability on the theory that these were mere illusions.

“I hope you can get back to what needs to be done” is SO much saner.

Axé.
