Times of crisis can teach us a lot about ourselves, if we’re willing to pay attention. The coronavirus pandemic right now is a good opportunity to learn from something terrible. A lot of people are scared at the moment and it’s hard to blame them, because it’s impossible to say how much worse things might get and who might be hit. But who do your thoughts turn to right now? Who’s on your mind? Who do you worry about? If you’ll pay attention to these questions — and answer honestly — you’ll tell yourself a lot about who you really love. Even if I can’t protect those few who I worry about, I know where my thoughts are. I know who I wish I could run away with to somewhere safe. I know who I wish I could protect. I know who I love. It’s a good exercise to reflect on this.
