There are times when we have a devastating shock like the death of someone close to us and the rest of the world continues to treat us as normal. The discussions about what you have for dinner, what the weather is like - they all seem so unimportant and we just want to scream at people to shut up. Remember what those feelings are like, and try to be more aware today of how other people are feeling. Perhaps someone being quiet or off at work is not actually in a bad mood but something is happening in their life, large or small, that is affecting them. Do not always jump to the most convenient conclusion about why people act how they do.
