Coping with COVID-19 long-term

In case you haven’t noticed, COVID-19 is, in a way, here to stay. Since it made its grand entrance earlier this year, we have undoubtedly felt and noticed the lasting effects of its influence, and I’m not exactly sure how we will ever revert to what we once perceived as normal until a reliable and safe vaccine is developed.

Because we have been dealing with the coronavirus for quite a while now, I wanted to write a post to sort of check in with whoever is reading it sort of thing. How is everyone feeling with the long-term implications that have been imposed on us as a result of the virus? Do you find yourself feeling upset? Angry, scared, frustrated? What do you see pertaining to this situation in the future? Are you concerned that things are beyond our control? Are you worried the full truth is being held from us? Is a vaccine the true answer? When will social distancing become a thing of the past?

These are just a few questions I figured some of us may be pondering off the top of my head. I’m sure there are a whole lot more.

I’m trying my best to come to terms with what could very well be the new normal, and while my perspective towards the situation has been optimistic for the most part, I certainly have days in which I catch myself feeling down. Pandemic’s aren’t something many of us can relate to, and we are all trying our best to navigate this new and unfamiliar unknown.

If you’re struggling with a COVID-19-oriented life, perhaps it’s time to reach out to someone you trust and talk about how you’re feeling. You’re not alone, and it’s possible confiding in someone could truly make a difference in how you’re feeling right now.
