Today’s coping tip is to share an important goal with someone you trust.
I’m not sharing an important goal here. Honestly, some of the things that are important to me make me more vulnerable and I really don’t want to hear criticism, comments, or even cheering. Until I move forward more, both mentally and in actuality, those things aren’t helpful for me.
Instead, I’m sharing something that I want to accomplish with a close friend and my wife. Those are the two people that I trust to listen, just listen. I don’t need them to push me or encourage me. Just to share something that will help me think things through for myself.
I started to add a daily coping tip to the SQL Server Central 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.
