All my wishes came true!

For years, I scoured headlines hoping to one day see news of a global calamity that would upend daily life as we know it. Last month I got my wish! Since Covid-19 and the idea of social distancing has taken hold, my depression and anxiety have eased considerably, and I feel better, mentally and emotionally than I have in a decade. I like the empty, (mostly) quiet streets, being able to hear birds instead of traffic, and having people at more than arms length. I know this’ll sound awful to a lot of people, but the pandemic is alright by me!

Congratulations on being a piece of shit I guess?
Thousands of people are dead but at least you can hear birds chirping.
Groovy.

If it's that important to you, just move to an isolated region and enjoy your life there. Where there's a will, there's a way.
It doesn't take people dying to ease your social anxiety.

The world actually ended on Y2K. Last 20 years have been a hologram

What you are saying, I somewhat agree too. No one has first world problems anymore, and you don't see tons of people scurrying around all worried about problems that don't exist. It's awesome! My life hasn't changed much, besides the income, but I feel calmer thats for sure.
