Really! We are really playing this game Who has the bigger balls? The earth has been pleaded with a beast called COVID-19 AKA Coronavirus. She doesn’t care about your social status, age, race, family, how rich, or how poor you are. She is a very feisty beast running havoc on the world swallowing us slowly.
This is the time when everyone should come together to find a solution. Naturally, one-sized doesn’t fit all situations. Sharing information can be beneficial for everyone during the brainstorming period. If all the different countries place their ideas and information together; pretty sure they can come up with some conscientious decision that works for this beast. People prefer to blame, call out, minimize, lie, and argue with each other. They are so concerned with blaming each other for the devastation the beast has caused. We can care less about the stupidly that is being displayed to the public. We just want this beast to stop killing our loved ones. She has destroyed so many lives in a short period. Rona(Coronavirus) has created a new normal for everyone. We all are scrambling to figure out what the next steps are. This beast has publically proved she is the dictator of this storyline. As soon as the government officials get their heads out of the clouds. Maybe we can start the climb out of this beast’s belly.
Yes, the world’s system of things has been compromised. People have lost jobs, companies, money, family members, and even worst their lives. Every time we turn on the television for guidance, we end up with misleading information. The death toll is steadily rising. The number of people with COVID-19 is still going up. There is some hope people are recovering from the sickness.
The quarantine can do a lot to people mentally and physically. It’s not just about isolation from others. You find yourself slowing down from life in general. You have time to think about everything you had done in your life. It’s just you and your thoughts no interruptions or excuses. Time literally slows down you begin to realize there is so much time on your hands to complete the things you had postponed because of life.
You start to think about the people you surround yourself with the good and the bad ones. The evaluating process begins with the past and current relationships you had. You start wondering if you should make amends with people or just leave it alone. It’s amazing how you realize the actions you have taken in the past weren’t completely thought out. Now you analyze every move you make. The daydreams start to become stronger. You are more eager now than ever to hit the pavement running.
Quarantine time gives you a new outlook on life and the people around you. Now is the time to complete the goals you have set out to do. Utilizes your time wisely. Try not to be hasty and live the best life you can.
I am learning stress has lot of control of your well being in life. Unwillingly we allow stress to interfere in daily functions. Home,work, school and soical gatherings can be very stressful for a person to deal with.
We had to self-quarantine for several days due to a coworker being exposed to the virus from a relative. My emotions were at its peak the whole time. My anxiety and paranoia kicked into overdrive. Normally I don’t mind staying home, but when other people have to stay home with you it’s nerve-racking. Every cough, sneeze, and nose-blowing I heard had me wondering if we had the virus. To ease the tension I secluded myself in the bed; and binge Netflix, Amazon Prime, and cable. The news came, we were clear to go back to work and resume life again. Sadly freedom only lasted for a couple of days.
It has been trying times lately. Some days depression would beat my butt all day long, then anxiety would come in and finish the job. I have been on an emotional roller coaster daily. It seem life was throwing rocks, bricks and grenades at me. Good thing I have professional outlets to utilize in times like this. To be honest I don’t think I would’ve mentally been able to come out of this fight alone without any assistance. It is truly important to have a good emotional support team in your corner at all times. As we all know mental health can affect a person at any given time. It is hard to fight this battle alone.
I’ve learned you have to removed yourself away from of toxic environments, and people. It is fine to be alone from time to time to detox from these issues at hand. You will have time to think clearly and work on yourself. Each time you will discover something new about yourself to work on. Key point is learning how to be honest with yourself and accept your situation for what it is. We all are imperfect humans. We all are a working progress. I had to reply heavily on my faith. Praying always works wonder on our lives.
