About idling away, that has been, (more or less), me in a nutshell for the last seven(!) years, since I stopped working because of a disability due to mental issues. I have since tried on my own to get back into coding, but failed. Now I’m taking a new, slower strategy, not to beat myself up over the fact that I’ve got to this place, but rather be a friend of myself and build myself up very slowly.
@odd Yeah, virtual coffee is a good start. I myself have made it a routine now to call one of my friends every week. I guess I can make that a scheduled video call.
On slowing down, that mirrors exactly what I'm current doing. It is important in this time of global lockdown to love and pamper oneself more, I guess.
@amit I recognize much of myself in what you wrote in your article. I have always strived to be efficient, so, have I reckoned, I will have more time to do other things, or to relax. Always lived as this is only a test run; never relaxed while I’m doing things. The quote was very good.
