“How are you doing?”
“Oh fine, you know. Considering what’s happening. At least I still have a job, not like my other team mates. So I can’t complain.”
“Wow yea, that is lucky.”

“How are you doing?”
“Oh fine, you know. Considering what’s happening. At least I still have a job, not like my other team mates. So I can’t complain.”
“How are you coping? Are you getting a bigger workload? How are you feeling about what’s happened in your company?”

Many are carrying their own burden of pain and suffering, and they are cautious as to how much they share – given that the pandemic has literally destroyed lives and livelihoods of so many people.

When you show that you listen, and you care – you help lessen the pain someone is carrying on their shoulders.

We are all in this together, on this tiny planet we call home.

I don’t fancy moving to Mars where I might have to drink recycled pee 😵 – so I’m going to #domybit.

If you can, you should do it too.
