These days, there’s been a redefinition of what it means to “need” something. Or someone. If we can stay away from each other, find other ways to connect, and actually shelter in place then we might have more control than we think. At least, that’s only if we do these things.
That might actually be our biggest problem when it comes to such a pandemic: we don’t know when or where or how things are happening and well, it hasn’t happened recently. We have no timeline and no realistic expectations—it’s not that this is the scariest part. Logically, maybe it’s not scary at all.
