Also, a lot if people seem to think people are judging them much more harshly and much more frequently than they actually are. The truth is, people are thinking about themselves most of the time, just like you are. They’ve got their own problems. Be kind to other people, and you’ll find it’s easier to be kind to yourself as well

Related, in the U.S. there was a place called Sharps Island off the coast of Maryland that had a historic colonial era community. In 1848 it was said to measure 449 acres, by 1942 just 17 acres, and by the 1960’s it was gone. There were a number of islands in the Chesapeake Bay that suffered the same fate ( ). Apparently the culprit was land subsidence after the end of the last glacial maximum. That’s just my understanding though, so take it with a grain of salt.

It’s kind of sad to think that we lost the archeological record on these Welsh islands, but that’s how it goes I guess.
