I 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. All my coping tips are under this tag.
Today’s tip is to contact someone who many be alone for feeling isolated.
I call my Mom every week or so, knowing she’s alone. She’s content, but I do know that life is better with people in it. However, I know my brother and other family talk with her, so I’m not too concerned.
I do have other friends that I know are without a partner in life, either young or older, and I decided to reach out recently when I typed this post.
In this case, I have a friend I know that lives alone. This person has family, but I don’t know how often they see anyone in person or have a conversation. I sent a message, and then had a conversation back and forth, just catching up.
It made my day. Hopefully they can say the same.
