I don’t know a single person whose life has not been blighted, at one time or another, by disease, discomforts, disasters, disappointments, debilitations, disquietudes, decrepitudes and embuggerances.
It seems to be an inseparable part of being human.
The important thing is not to dwell on them or let them bring you down.
They’re inevitable and happen to everyone.
The antidote to them is compassion, cohesion, contentment, collaboration, co-operation, caring, creativity, connectedness and solidarity. We need each other’s support and help to cope.
Together, we can make it through the trials of every life.
