It is said that in crisis situations Your true self is revealed for better or worse:
If you are a positive person, You face the difficulty with positivity.
If you are out of control, Then you will lose any restraint.
And if you are a patient person, You will also be patient in crisis situations.
This past month has brought our true self out, Things we love about ourselves,
And things we love less about us, too.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE WORLD
‘Each of us does his best to his own limits’ (Judith Keenan).
And in everything there is both good and bad –
There are some that the quarantine at home does them good,
They spent time with the kids, they exercise and eat well , And take the time to tidy up the rooms.
For some the quarantine did really bad ,
They quarreled with their partner And became sad / impatient.
But in truth,
Each crisis often produces something good,
If you choose to have a positive outlook ( and for some , i realize , it may not be an option .
But our tendency is to criticize ourselves And see the the flaws in Yourself , Maybe go to sleep with guilty feelings, For what we didn’t do enough,
Or who we weren’t as we wanted. …
criticise others in our circle , And see what they didn’t do enough, And how we would like them to behave differently.
The challenge in this period is to look for the positive,
See what we did well, What our spouse did,
How our children did manage to cope,
Despite the difficulties.
And remember- That everyone takes it differently,
And everyone has different abilities, And everyone has something different to offer during a crisis.
Try to think what you like about your behavior
During this period?
And what do you think your spouse is doing well,
And if possible, at the end of the day, give a Good word to everyone in the family, maybe tell your son
What a champion he was today,
for Going through the day, as best as he could.
And to yourself you say, If I could do more – I really would have,
And if my partner could have done more he would have done, And we did the best we could,
And maybe tomorrow we can do better.
Today more than ever,
We will bring compassion home,
Because it’s really hard for everyone,
And each of us,
Does his best to his limits.
