I’m used to thinking about this country in a certain way. Even though it’s changed so much recently, there was always that feeling of stability and sanctuary, like it was a safe space to go to. At least if you knew the right place to be at the right time.
Now the only sanctuary feels like my apartment.
I’m so cooped up right now. This is what it feels like to not go outside. I have no idea how some people do it. Living by yourself only works if you can leave home.
That being said, there’s so many others who have it worse than I do. I am more concerned for those who have lost their jobs than for myself. So many people are not going to pay rent. This is really one of those problems where prevention is more important than cure. The more damage this pandemic does, the worse the aftermath is going to be.
And that is why I am staying indoors and so should you. I have no idea what the future holds but I do believe we are a strong people and can weather this. We just have to do our best for the time being. And even though social distancing feels terrible, it’s for the good of everyone.
