When people go through really hard things in life, often that's when the most human growth happens. And one of the things that we see for a lot of people who experience post-traumatic growth is this....sort of reverence for the ordinary moments of everyday that we actually didn't put a lot of thought into before....
The work that I do is often helping people, support their family members as somebody who's dying, as well. And I've really come to appreciate how important it is that as humans we're able to be with each other when we're grieving a death, and be at the bedside when somebody is dying. There's been a lot of barriers to doing that this year.
