It’s nearly the end of the year and the world is still different than we could imagine before 2020. We still don’t know how to deal with the new kinds of diseases short and long-term. We still have no real clue and conclusion how to save our planet (means us humans, the planet will survive). Many of us now are in a state of uncertainty, of frustration, of stress. Working remotely isn’t easy for all of us, the split between childcare and work is hard, and our social contacts have been reduced to the minimum. That’s definitely not a combination that makes our lives easy, calm and ourselves happy. That’s why I found this writing so useful: News is the last thing we need right now but it’s addictive like a drug. Reading this made me finally block all the major news sites. I’m already two weeks in, and it feels quite good. And fear not, it’s not that I don’t know about the important news, there are still enough ways to get them from other people. It’s simply that you don’t fetch them actively and don’t fall into the trap of getting caught by another handful of articles.

I hope you all can enjoy the end of the year, make it a calm and nice time despite of all the things happening all over the world, despite all the articles here, all the news around us and all the other people sharing their fears, their concerns and annoyances with us. Let’s try to reframe it, show empathy, listen to people and try to understand them. Read you in 2021 again, thanks for everything to you, your support, your money gifts, your article suggestions, your conversations via email. I’m really grateful for this audience.
