Thought for today:
‘Goodness is about character – integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how we treat other people.’
— Dennis Prager

I was moved by Caitlin Moran’s weekly musings in The Times today about socially anxious introverts and how they can function invisibly.
This really resonated with me because I share many of the traits she talks about.
I am more comfortable talking to an audience of 2,000 than a small group at an event or party.
Caitlin also made a plea to work out what makes us happy and to let other people be happy in their own way.
My hope for 2021, besides the obvious ones relating to the virus, is that we have learned a lesson about the importance of how we treat other people.
You won’t be surprised to know that this comes up a lot in my therapy work.
One person’s treatment of another person causing all manner of disturbance and distress.
That we can get through this and be stronger than before is essential to my work.
It would be really nice though if it didn’t happen at all in the first place.
