Some time ago, someone I “met” over the internet asked my advice about something. I’m not sure how much use I was at the time, but I hope I helped them a little. I never did meet this person, nor have I spoken to them.
Today I told the same person about a problem I have, as you do, looking for ideas and inspiration when you can’t see a clear way ahead. And I received some excellent and calming advice.
So firstly, thanks very much to my virtual friend. I hope my advice to you back then was halfway as constructive as yours was this morning to me.
And secondly, to everyone on the internet who gives something – whether friendship, advice, help or whatever. It is appreciated, as I discovered today. You don’t need to meet someone or know them personally to be able to help them.
There are bad points to the internet, but there are good ones too.
