Since the beginning of the global pandemic, once bustling places have turned into ghost towns, football stadiums, restaurants, cafés and shops more or less completely deserted and all air travel have been completely affected, with some businesses going into administration, not to mention unemployment increasing gradually every day.
The new normal of going to and from work with virtually no traffic has been the norm for us all and has, to a certain degree, made the daily commutes to and from work easier, but at the same time, has changed how we see the world now compared to life before the pandemic.
The things we took for granted then we have now had to start appreciating more than ever as everyone has had to adapt to the new normal of going to and from work with everywhere more or less completely deserted, not to mention the pandemic and lockdown resulting in everyone not being able to meet up with friends, but instead being able to contact over phone/video call, and the pandemic has adversely affected everyone and everything, no matter how much we look at it in any shape or form.
I must admit, not being able to go out with my friends on nights out, especially after work, and not being able to travel abroad now the pandemic has affected the world globally has affected me mentally the same as it has affected everyone else, but it has made me appreciate everyone and everything more, and it has made me appreciate the fact I can stay safe with my family knowing that as long as I can go to and from work safely knowing I have my family all under one roof, at least then, I know that as long as my family are safe and sound, and as long as my friends are all safe and sound, then that’s all that matters, because now, more than ever, we all need to stick together when we’re apart by texting, phoning, emailing or even video calling one another to make sure we can all cope together at a time like this where we’re all apart through circumstances beyond our control.
Again, this new normal we are now living has seen the world change dramatically, as everyone’s had to adjust to this ethereal new approach where we aren’t able to go out and do the things we used to be able to do, while at the same time, taking into account and appreciating the fact that life after the pandemic will never be the same again, but will see a new difference where everyone will have to be more cautious about their own health and well-being.
Which leaves me to ask you, has the coronavirus pandemic changed your outlook on the world now and how have you adjusted to life now during the pandemic as opposed to life before the pandemic?
I would love to hear your feedback, and again, more than ever, let’s stick together even when we’re apart.
Stay safe, everyone!
