I think I've finally cracked. I've had enough of this 'toxic positivity'. You must have seen it: 'If you don't come out of this lockdown having learned a new skill you didn't lack time, you lacked discipline'.

Where's the empathy? Why do we always have to be 'learning a new skill'? What about people who have lost their jobs, or trying to work at home with the kids about... or just miss the freedom of grabbing a 'real world coffee'?

So if you do learn a new skill, that's great. Love it. But please don't feel like you're failing if you don't. Who needs that kind of pressure!
