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 a friend to let them know you’re thinking of them.
I actually had a friend reach out to me recently, just checking how I was doing. It was surprising to me, since I was actually thinking to reach out to them, but kept letting something get in the way. We had a nice text chat across a few minutes.
I did reach out to another friend, telling them I was thinking about them and hoping I’d see them soon. This person made time for lunch, and we had a nice time catching up, something we’d not done in a few months.
Make time for friends, at least a few.
