When You’re Stressed the F**k Out… Part III: Three Questions

Greetings and salutations dear readers, it’s been a while since I’ve last written on here. A lot has gone down and while there’s no need to rehash all the terrible events, there’s a few questions that I would like to ask you…

How are you coping?

What are you doing to help you deal with everything that’s going on?  Did you become more productive during these past months? Have you picked up a new hobby? Or have you become unproductive? Please understand that it’s okay to not be unproductive. During these chaotic times, being unproductive is one of the best decisions you can make.

What have you’ve learned?

I’ve learned that I can do things that I didn’t think I could do or were frustrated or had given up on doing. I’m still attempting to do new things-but at a slow pace. I’ve learned not to rush and take my time.  What is time anyway?

I’ve also learned that people, organizations, things, etc. can become so messy. Recent events have revealed how messy a lot of folks really are and it’s both unsurprising and surprising.

Do you have any hope for the future?

Yes and no. I know that people worldwide are fighting for a better tomorrow but at the same time I’m in despair. But the hope I have tells me not to give up and keep going… but everyday it gets harder and harder.

Well readers, those are my questions. I hope that you’re being safe, that you’re wearing a mask when it’s required to, and that you’re doing well. Never give up, never surrender. Don’t go quietly into the night and remember your existence is important.

  1. Hey there! Better sometimes than never. 😁

    I’m doing good. Some days still in shock and awe at what has happened and what continues. Some days my anxiety gets the better of me. But every day I’m grateful for good health. I did not become more productive in the ways I had hoped. I thought lockdown would be a great way to focus on writing except it wasn’t. I’m only recently really coming back around to it. Even my actual reading of physical books diminished though audio listens did not. BUT I did take action and get back to gardening and started worm farming! And I practice yoga regularly which I highly recommend.

    I do have hope for the future but sometimes when I hear the things people are saying I worry. So while I have hope, I’m kind of afraid. But I keep praying (Please God I’m begging! Lol, for real though) and trying to be a better person, at the very least in my own circle. I’ve learned a fair bit about the world and science and sociology and history. Hopefully these things can help me be a better member of this world and community.

    I’m sorry for the ways in which you’ve suffered during this pandemic and societal upheaval. I’m sorry for the ways in which you’ve suffered through and because of history. I hope the future brings about a better humanity. I do believe it’s possible if people are willing to listen and work. Have a good one. I hope you still hope and dream.
