Sometimes you just have to do the right thing. During the past year of the coronavirus pandemic, we have been exposed to so much frustration. Frustration from not being able to do “normal,” frustration from people not wanting to respect science or other people’s safety, frustration from isolation. It happens on so many levels. Yet, somehow, we have managed survive a year of life as we never imagined it. I’m not saying there aren’t scars, but it’s amazing how resilient we are.Continue reading “Do the right thing”

A website visitor in Arizona asks:

Over the past year or so I have been repeatedly presented with dishonesty in people within my close circle – both in friends and in co-workers. They seem happy to look me straight in the eye and be completely open about how they have profited (without apparent consequence) from their blatant dishonesty, lies, stealing and general sneakiness. When I have attempted to point it out they justify and/or completely deny the lie – sometimes, frankly, they look at me like I’m crazy. It’s extremely disheartening as I try to figure out what the point is in taking the high road. Since this has been put “in front of my face” over and over, I assume there is a “lesson” here and I would love any guidance as to discover what that might be and how to process through it. Thank you.
