COVID-19 didn’t break us, it showed us what was broken. We were so busy pretending that everything was ok and that we loved the rat race that we didn’t stop to consider what it was doing to our bodies and souls. And then everything stopped and suddenly we had to slow down and face the boredom that we’ve desperately avoided our entire lives.
There are many things that I miss as normal has been upended and a new normal is waiting on the other side, but we’ll make it. We are all mourning the loss of something, most of us are mourning the loss of many things. While I struggle to cope with all of the things I miss, I know that this is for the best and someday those things will return, in one way or another. Until then, I will just keep living the best that I can.
