A friend of mine recently told me how she had been surprised by their tenant, Michael, who lives in a cottage on their premises. He is a young, very active person in his mid-twenties with an outgoing personality. His friends visit him often, he loves to go out and sometimes he comes home at the early hours of the morning. When the decision of the lockdown was announced a few weeks ago, my friend was wondering how Michael would cope with being cooped up inside for so long without any personal contact, apart from herself and her husband. But as time went by, she became more and more impressed with his level of self-understanding by employing a new skill to help him cope with the situation that does not necessarily cater for his outgoing personality.
