When quarantine was first issued in the states, we felt like this was going to be a much needed reset in our lives—mandatory isolation to teach us to be more reflective and self-caring. The aftermath of such imposition would cause us to be more kind and caring towards other humans. 6 months later, and restrictions are still imposed, we feel more burnt out and stuck rather than our initial feelings towards COVID-19 lockdowns. Even more, we discuss how instead of positivity, we are starting to feel cynical towards our outlook of the future.
In this episode, we recap the first 6 months of the year 2020, specifically citing the details of when COVID-19 struck the world. From there, we answer 2 questions that discusses our current state of emotions and how it impacts how we feel towards what we hope may happen in the next 6 months. This episode features the usuals: Steven, Tyler, and Zvon. Each of them ran with the questions and provided a quick and thoughtful response to them. Tyler provided the quick recap and then they all answered these 2 questions:
Now that we are almost half a year with COVID-19, how are we feeling? Did we think it would last this long? Are we Feeling stuck?
Hows the outlook for the future? How are you preparing for the new normal, or what is your expectation moving forward after what we all had faced? What do you hope for by the end of the year?
In the end, we had an interesting and much needed conversation. Even if it was just the platform for us to vent out our emotions that we have been bottling up to ourselves the past 6 months, it allowed us to speak freely and let go. Though times feel like we are more bogged down than liberated, we are in it to survive, and we hope to continue to stay strong and support one another.
