(Note: From now onwards all the pandemic related posts will be labeled and categorized under pandemic and me.)
Its a burning issue for me these days. Now its been a year and we know what corona virus is?,what it does?, How to be safe?, And why everyone’s so scared?
Why everyone’s so scared? This is something that bothers me a lot. And if people close to you were affected by pandemic then you will be too. What really bothers me is the carelessness involved in asking “why so scared?”. The utter irresponsibility with “I am healhy so why are you bothered?”. The sickness and self centered attitude in “Everything bothers you, calm down!”.
The root cause for this might be lack of empathy but somewhere its also lack of responsiblity. “How can something I normally do, would harm you?” is what goes on in every such person’s mind. I don’t blame these people, they might not be a spreader too. But they are being careless nonetheless. Careless in the sense that they think people who care are just scared and need to take a break. And that’s their attitude just about everything else.
Getting through with these people is a big challenge. Its bigger than confessing a crime or selling insurance policy to someone. These tough times have tested our patience and strength. But beyond that its testing our humanity.
Now its up to you if you want to win or lose.
Till then, take care of yourself and your loved ones(no matter what others say). If you do then more power to you!
