One’s inability to come to a decision can create a never-ending cycle of turmoil. This is especially true when we need to make decisions at important inflexion points and that may significantly alter the course we’re on. Many of us don’t even realise the extent of the turmoil that we’re in, as it may not even be a conscious thought. However, the turmoil could quite easily manifest in different areas in our lives, how we interact with others and how our bodies respond to it.
The Covid-19 pandemic and related lockdowns around the globe has put a spotlight on the need for empathy. Many have been able to display great empathy, while others have been struggling.
