Feelings of isolation and pessimism suddenly loom large under this temporary but draining transit. Old emotions emerge to block our productivity. We feel critical and judgmental toward ourselves and others, too.
Theres little that will please us right now. The demands of supervisors and authority figures feel more onerous than usual and we drag our feet in fulfilling them. Family issues seem to take on more significance and everything seems weighty and burdensome. Its all too easy to project our emotions onto our parents or our bosses at this time, making them responsible for our own problems. The best use of this energy is simply to put our noses to the grindstone and keep on working.
