Covid-19 has hit us like never before. No doubt 2020 was a challenging year for everyone and now in 2021, we are still facing it. All of us have not fully recovered from the shock, pain, and difficulties that the pandemic has brought us. Many of us struggle to get through and figure out how we are going to live with this new normal. We still long and hope for the day that it will be like before. Those times where we could travel, meet friends and families without fear of getting the virus, and maintain that so-called stability we had before all this ever happened. But let’s face it, it would not be like before. But we can hope that it will be better.
Living with the dreaded unknown is extremely unsettling and many of us struggle with mental health problems. The pandemic caught us by surprise that we did not get to prepare ourselves mentally and emotionally for the effects of it. What we can do now though is to work on building our mental resiliency.
