What I learnt this week: Not revealing your grief doesn’t mean you are not hurting #WILTW

Great reflective piece on not denying or burying the humanity of health care workers.

This is the 27th #WILTW

While it might be ‘trash’ I am quite a big fan of the American TV series ‘Arrow‘. It is pretty typical rich vigilante with very troubled past trying to right wrongs kind of stuff. A previous love interest of the hero died recently; an event which hit all of Arrow’s team (including their technology specialist Felicity Smoak) hard: 

Felicity: How can you stand there being so cold and rational?

Arrow (Oliver Queen):    ‘Cause I don’t have the luxury of falling to pieces. Everyone’s looking to me to handle things, to make the right decisions. Everyone is looking to me to lead.

If I grieve, nobody else gets to…

Felicity: You’re still a human being, Oliver. You’re allowed to have feelings. I know sometimes that it’s easier to live under that hood.

Arrow: I’m not.

(From Arrow Series 3 Episode 2 “ Sara“
