I think simply being grateful for what we have is a mood enhancer
We mustn't forget that we are human beings and a big part of what makes us all special and worthy is the ability to feel. So, if you are feeling vulnerable and emotional: embrace it, live it, cherish it. Feelings and emotions are a big part of what makes us human, of what brings us all together. The good and the bad.
When I am feeling more vulnerable I usually meditate, which is something I've been doing for a while and find that it really helps. But knowing it is not for everyone, I think simply being grateful for what we have is a mood enhancer. We have homes, we have food, we have technology to keep us all closer and we are healthy. It doesn't get any better than that!
We will come out from this stronger and wiser. Let's embrace our emotions right now. Like we would say back home, "Não há esperança sem temor, nem amor sem receio"—there is no hope without a bit of fear, nor love without awe.
