Just because the roads are a little busier, it doesn’t mean that everyone is breaking lockdown.
Just because most people stay quiet in that meeting, it doesn’t mean that no-one cares.
Just because I struggled today, it doesn’t mean I always will.
Just because you fell short of your goal today, it doesn’t mean you’ll never succeed.
Generalisations are useful, but when they lead to negative thoughts, it’s always* best to add a bit of logic, fact or kindness to the mix….
(* And I love the irony that this thought only works when we generalise…)
