I’ve started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter, which is helping me deal with the issues in the world. I’m adding my responses for each day here.
Today’s tip is to remember that all feelings and situations pass in time.
This was hard for me at first. I kept thinking this pandemic was like a blizzard. A week or two and things will be back to normal. It took me weeks to find some acceptance. Slowly, I’ve started to accept the changes in the world, bend like a reed with difficulties, and move around them.
With that, I also know that while the world may change permanently, I think that lots of the stress, upset and uncertain feelings, and the struggles with the current situation will pass. I’ll get on with life, either in a similar way to the past, or in a new way, and strive forward.
