A story about a deceased loved one will bring comfort and happy memories at this time.
There are always terms and conditions in any friendship or relationship. They are a social contract that we make with each other; an agreement to follow some simple rules and abide by them. You may have bent a few of these rules lately, and a few people may not be pleased. Don't try to convince them that you were right. They can't see that you only bent the rules a little so that you could try and make things fairer. They'll calm down soon enough.
Be kind to yourself. Pay yourself first. Take care of your needs. If you don't, who will?
