Pandemic is still on, but so is HOPE!

By HAZEL KHATRA

The second wave of Corona Virus has not only got the illness with it but also the deleterious energy which has truly become agonizing for all of us. The amount of news flowing by makes it even more challenging to deal with the situation.

The anxiety of each person has reached a stage, where doing basic tasks has become a big deal. As we breathe right now, another person takes their last.

The circumstances we all are going through are too overwhelming, but switching off completely isn’t possible either. People around us are losing their people who mean the world to them. Staying inside due to lockdown is tough but wearing a mask all the time is asphyxiating and the thought itself is so painful.

What can one do to remain positive – switch off the T.V. for a while or log out from social media accounts temporarily. Overconsumption of information can leave you feeling uncomfortable and helpless. The whole experience of not being able to control the situation can deepen the frustration.

Deep down we all know what our country (India) is going through. It is not easy to remain positive in such times at all but what makes it easy is praying – staying hopeful/

Hoping that this too shall pass as there is nothing that we as individuals can do. Spending time with our loved ones, listening to light music, manifesting positivity, penning down your feelings and venting them out in a journal, video calling friends & family, trying out something new & distracting yourself from the unending situation are the only few ways to remain positive during this pandemic. It is okay if you do not feel so sparkly right now. It is okay to cry!

It is okay to be mad and confused and feel all kinds of weird. It is okay to feel lucky and sad in equal measure.

This is your reminder that outside of these perfect little squares, there’s stuff going wrong, there are tears and meltdowns and blunders and a whole heap of a mess because we are human beings and life is never straightforward or positive all the time. Stop being mad at yourself for being exhausted, for crying, losing patience, or not having the time or energy to do absolutely everything.

Stop being so hard on yourself, all of this is incredibly difficult and YOU ARE DOING OKAY.

SOON ENOUGH, WE WILL SEE & SQUEEZE OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS AND WHEN THAT DAY COMES.

LET’S KEEP PRAYING AND HOPING THAT WE GET TO SEE THIS DAY SOON!
