There’s no doubt you’ve noticed it. You’ve noticed it in yourself, probably family, and perhaps even friends if you’ve been lucky enough to interact with them this past year.

What is it? Stress, and anxiety. This worldwide pandemic is bringing it out in all of us. And unfortunately, not everyone wants to talk about it, seek help or search for solutions on their own.

Do you feel like you are a kind person? It certainly has been tough to be kind lately. But most people would likely answer yes to this question. But these same people can probably look back at previous times, Pre pandemic to now, and specifically point out things that they would handle differently.
