I’m Trying

To look on the bright side of this pandemic. I think the good things are: getting away with doing nothing for a while, being more grateful for everything, doing a lot of deep thinking and meditation, bonding more with certain friends than we would normally. We get closer when there is a crisis. It strips away all the superficial bs and busy-ness and judgement that people are normally preoccupied with constantly when things are going ‘well.’ Many people get big egos in times of abundance and forget about all the important things and start getting too competitive. In a way, this pandemic is stripping us all down to our cores and creating more genuine connections.

I commented to my boyfriend the other day that it's nice to wear a mask when I'm all yawny because I don't have to think to constantly cover my mouth. He told me that I'm ever the optimist.

Agree to some extent

But it can be very wearing being stuck pretty much 24/7 with someone you find you don't really like or respect.

Agree. I think the biggest benefit of these taxing times is that people have let their (metaphorical) masks slip. You can now see them for what they truly are. And that really is a gift.

Yeah the folks with partners wanted to have nothing to do with me. They are probably sick of each other by now though, jokes on them.
