It’s only 3 months ago, coinciding with the tragic death of Caroline Flack, that the phrase ‘Be kind’ was trending worldwide and was seemingly being adopted by many. Sadly, it seems quite a few of us have forgotten that sentiment of late. Whether it’s political views, personal views regarding whether or not our children should return to school, or opinions on anything else relating to lock-down and Covid, there appears to be a hell of a lot of sniping and moral high grounding going on right now. Can we not just pause for a minute, take a step back, and remember that all of us have dozens of factors in our lives which influence what we say, think, and do, many of them not that apparent to others. During a week when we’ve witnessed harrowing and devastating footage in America, with that country a time-bomb of hatred and anger just waiting to explode, let’s just remember why we were all asking each other to be kind to each other just a few weeks ago. It might just make things a little easier for all of us, not least where our mental health is concerned.
As always, thanks for reading. Take care, best wishes and be kind.
