Positivity is a possible short term alternative to “empathy”.
“This stay at home period can be the best moment of your life to discover your purpose on earth, set goals, enjoy new experiences through reading and learning, and focus intensely on what really matter most in life.”
We’re sure you have heard that and rolled your eyes (at least we did). But the outbreak of COVID-19 has created fear and negative side-effects on people's personal lives world-wide.
“Positivity” can be the simplest form of “empathy”. And it can be a great counterbalance to the seriousness you might need to show later further down the road.
To stock up your supplies of positivity now, might give you a reservoir you can consume from later.
