If you’re not growing and learning during this public health emergency, what exactly are you doing?
Some people seem to be missing the point of this challenging time. If you’re not getting the point — what is really important and what needs to be prioritized— you’re not learning.
Here are 4 signs you’re completely missing the point and learning nothing during this pandemic:
Lacking Commitment, Patience and Love for People Who Matter
If you can’t put down your issues and be present and available for the ones you love, you’re missing a big life lesson. If you can’t be patient with others ( and yourself) you’re also missing the point.
If you don’t prioritize someone now during this awful event— you have zero priorities.
Grumbling About When You’re Healthy
If you’re healthy, be grateful. Many people aren’t. It’s ok to be upset about missing milestones and friends. It’s ok to be upset if you’re out of work.
But if you’re missing the gratitude in being healthy, you’re missing the point.
Not Checking In on Loved Ones / Being an Absent Partner
Now is the time to check in however you can on loved ones from afar or in your home. Now is the time to be present. You’ll never have this kind of time at home again. Don’t make excuses. If you’re emotionally unavailable or checked out— you’ve got problems and you’re taking everyone for granted.
Being Hard on Yourself or Expecting Too Much of Others/ Oneself
Now is not the time to pressure yourself to be perfect or do fifty million things during a stressful pandemic. The same goes for others. Pressuring people or being hard on loved ones is not fair at this time. Be loving. Be patient. Be giving.
