I’ve started to add a daily coping tip to the SQLServerCentral newsletter and to the Community Circle, 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 get back in touch with a supportive friend and have a chat.
While I was feeling a little down recently, as I wrote yesterday, I tried to get some connection with others. I reached out to a local friend, to try and schedule a lunch and get some support. We ended up talking on the phone for nearly an hour, which put me behind at work, but it was a good break and just talking through things was good.
I’m glad I did it, and while I often reach out to others to offer support, I’m glad I reached out to ask for some this time.
