The worst thing you can do is prophesize all the possible ramifications of COVID—19, etc. *DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO* haha! My therapist has given me homework for this same issue - to read or listen to the audiobook of The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. I don’t yet know how it is, but just throwing it out there. We can all read it together :)

Same here friend. Too much bad news of late.
