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.
I reached out to a friend recently, just to check on them and see how they were coping with life. This person has had a hard year. In this case, they responded with an issue that was weighing them down.
I send back a few notes to remind them of good things, and the things that I appreciate and like about this person. I empathized with their struggle and told them I was hoping they would continue to dream of the future and what they could make.
