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 may be alone or feeling isolated.
I’ve done this a few times, but this is another good excuse to do so. I know a couple people that live alone, and I’ve worried about them a bit. I reached out and chatted a bit, just asking how they were and engaging in a bit of a conversation.
It was good to touch base and I actually reached out to a second friend to check on them.
It’s easy to forget how different someone else’s live might be and how lonely it can be to not be with others this time of year.
