It is psychological warfare and I totally understand what you mean. But the future is still open and non-anticipation (no matter how hard it is) IS still our friend. To echo what RedFox posted it is likely that "we were made for these times".I can’t handle a total lockdown for months and I’m not going to. Isolating people is psychological warfare. I’ll surely also lose my job when the government implements this. I’ll end up alone and broke. They steal away my freedom, my future and my life. When that happens I simply don’t care anymore. I’m sure more people will feel the same way. We will see who will outnumber who at that point.
That's how I feel about all of this at the moment.
The following quote always cheers me up and it is something I hold on to:
One of the most calming and powerful actions you can do to intervene in a stormy world is to stand up and show your soul. Soul on deck shines like gold in dark times. The light of the soul throws sparks, can send up flares, builds signal fires, causes proper matters to catch fire. To display the lantern of soul in shadowy times like these - to be fierce and to show mercy toward others; both are acts of immense bravery and greatest necessity.
Struggling souls catch light from other souls who are fully lit and willing to show it. If you would help to calm the tumult, this is one of the strongest things you can do.
My friends, do not lose heart. We were made for these times. I have heard from so many recently who are deeply and properly bewildered. They are concerned about the state of affairs in our world now. Ours is a time of almost daily astonishment...
That is why Laura recommended reading these romance novels, they help us regulate our emotions and work through tons of stuff and make us focus on another fictional, better world where people can love each other freely without psychopaths destroying their chances. It has helped me a lot and I am not the only one! Hang in there, bjorn.
