For the past four months or so, my time have been spent mostly at home indoor for social distancing because of the coronavirus. As much an introvert as I am, not difficult for me to understand why some folks are experiencing the COVID-19 fatigue.
Yes, as human being, we need social interaction. Unfortunately that is how the coronavirus gets transmitted. So social media have become the alternate means to satisfy the needs. Be it Netflix, Zoom, Facebook or other venues of choice, life goes on.
How much can these virtual relationships satisfy our needs for interaction? I don’t know the answer. But viscerally, I feel they are useful in staving off isolation or depression. Not a perfect fix but . . .
On certain days, the world feels dark, chaotic, and hopeless. Especially when normal balance is off center and future seems clear as mud, that’s when I come to appreciating the little things manifested in day-to-day human interaction.
By the way, if you are seeking reliefs from the stress and having the means, remember money can buy happiness. Why not give it try?
Stay safe & have a nice week.
