There's so much amazing stuff going on, a lot of people will be starting new hobbies or developing them, people will get more in touch with their feelings / start meditating or relaxing more, just so much great stuff. I think this will influence a lot of things positively going forward. Of...
We inspire ourselves imo, but there's so much cool stuff going on. For example online there's a lot of livestreams and musicians / artists sharing content on the internet, more so and in more inventive ways than usual. Going outside felt really good after being indoors for a few days.
This is the case fatality rates by age group in China, data through 11 Feb.
Yes some people are going to fall into the bracket where unfortunately it will be fatal for them, but the overall statistics are still like the above graph.
UK is now making its way into “lockdown” mode this week, so it seems. Schools are still open here and people are still working but the advice is to work at home if possible, avoid pubs and clubs, self isolate if you or somebody in your household has symptoms etc.

Yes, excellent topic. We “self hate” because that’s what we learned growing up (others did it to themselves and to us). However, it’s always possible to break the cycle.

what I will add is ... no matter WHAT happens, whether it’s this or a trillion trillion times worse, we can just have a...
