The last 3 years have been lessons for me in fragility.

Health is fragile. Your immune system is the only thing protecting you from dying suddenly. Staying healthy includes sleeping properly and going outdoors.

Wealth is fragile. One thing can tip everything upside down.
Your mental state is fragile, it is important not to dwell on things that are negative. It is easy to go down rabbit holes of sadness and despair and find it difficult to surface into the light. The light and hope are very important sources of energy to keep you achieving.
Countries are fragile, economies are fragile. Look at how things have been upturned in just two months?

Religions are fragile. Faith was never about gatherings or rituals. Faith is what you do because you believe and God is manifested in actions, not just words of affirmation.
Families are fragile. You need to keep reassuring each other of the love you have for each other. Forget stereotypes and roles, it is in times of adversity that you learn what true love really is about.

1 Corinthians 13:1

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, ... does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
Love is the strongest thing in the world. The bond that survives all other fragilities. It is the greatest thing we have. We can give it freely at no cost and receive it freely as well.

Learning to receive is a VERY BIG thing. Taking is NOT receiving.

I learned that recently.
Receiving involves acknowledgment and gratitude. Taking is about entitlement.

Do you pray to take and get or pray to receive? Pray with gratitude first and you receive. It is not even about religion but humanity and faith in our ability to love each other without boundaries.
I have learned that to give kindness to those who know how to receive kindness is the greatest thing ever.

I helped a young man get a job here on Twitter last year but he lost it again because of this crisis. He didn't tell me out of despair but gratitude. I learned from him.
I will now do everything for him to get back on his feet because he knows how to receive. It is a lesson we must all learn this period.
The hope to receive is why we do all we do daily. We receive things constantly that we take for granted. The greatest thing we receive daily is love. Let's be grateful for it.
