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 send an encouraging note to someone that needs a boost.
Many people I know have coped pretty well through this pandemic, but I also know that many people don’t want to share difficult times. I’ve reached out regularly to different people, sometimes just to say hi or check on them.
Recently I just reached out to an old friend, just to tell them I’d enjoyed something they’d posted recently and appreciated it. This, for someone that I’ve seen struggle a bit recently with a few things in their life.
They thanked me, and I hope it gave them a boost.
