3. One thing the world needs more of.

The world needs to understand that toxic positivity is a thing.  As defined by Google: 
Toxic positivity involves dismissing negative emotions and responding to distress with false reassurances rather than empathy. It comes from feeling uncomfortable with negative emotions. It is often well-intentioned but can cause alienation and a feeling of disconnection.
I mean, some negativity is normal.  Some unhappiness is normal.  The world needs an emotional tune-up.

I chose patience. Working in retail, this COVID pandemic has brought out the worst in some people and I have never thought more of patience being a virtue. We really are all in this together, whether we like it or not.

Alienation and disconnection. Yes, that's me! I'm going to reread this.
