Do not let the behavior or opinions of others destroy your inner peacе

How have you adapted to the changes brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic?

The pandemic messed with all of us. To put it plainly. People acted out differently, but they acted out. Some sheltered within their minds. Others became even more boisterous.

When the pandemic first hit, I was distraught. I worked in healthcare and had a huge task before me. One that not everyone understood. Not one that everyone appreciated. Many still don’t appreciate the enormous lift. And, for a while, that bothered me. I let the disrespectful and unforgiving behaviors and thoughts of others steal the joy I should have felt from some of the accomplishments. I figured everyone was distraught and in some form of pain.

However, what I have come to fully realize is that we all were in some form of pain. And, as such crappy behaviors by others because of their pain didn’t mean we had to ignore our own or squelch our joy.
