Think the best of other people. Other people greatly influence us, whether we like to admit it or not.
You have most likely noticed that people may have left your circle recently because of quarantine and this can cause concern. To help, you could:
- Be willing to reach out to these other people and share more often
- Other people may not be doing well. Be sensitive to the feelings of other people and how they are coping. Simply ask others: How are you?
You may also be worried about people you love who are not with you or those who are worse off than you are. This can also cause heightened levels of anxiety. To help, you could:
- Identify simple and realistic ways to help other people
- Avoid overextending your giving to others, again simply asking someone how they are is helpful
