For many people life hasn’t been smooth sailing these past few years. Living through a never-ending global pandemic with all its related fears and restrictions, not to mention disturbing levels of political discord in many places, has taken its toll on many people’s lives: their health, their finances, their mental health, and their personal relationships. Will we ever get past all of this to a “new normal”? If you find yourself relating to any part of this description, the quotes below might be useful.
