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 spend time wishing for other people to be happy.
This has been a hard 18 months, going through the pandemic and not being able to live life as I would have expected. However, it hasn’t been that hard for me. Some tough times, but really, my life has been great.
I know many others haven’t been as lucky. I’ve known a few, and I’ve read about others. I also know that in general, lots of people struggle in life, working very hard for little, and dealing with stress, hunger, fear, and more on a daily basis.
Today I’m stopping for a minute to think about kids that don’t get enough to eat every day. As poor as I was a few times in life, I didn’t miss meals. That’s not always the case, and hope that life goes better for these kids and they find joy and happiness somewhere in their lives.
