One thing the pandemic did for me was made me further disconnect from life, and others, and made the isolation difficult. I am single so I didn’t have anyone to hunker down with except for my beloved pets during that time.
I am definitely a people person, but I slowly became okay with being quiet, being at home, and pulling away from everyone.
I didn’t get depressed nor had thoughts of suicide, I simply became custom to the isolation.
Fast forward to now, I’m back to being fully connected. I feel so much happier now. I have a fabulous job with incredible co-workers. I feel blessed to go to work every day where we all are working together for the same goal. Everyone helps everyone and there isn’t anyone who feels they are superior and it’s beneath them to help on that level. This feels more like a family. I wouldn’t know how blessed I am had it not been for the isolation and knowing what it’s like to feel like I was alone on an island.
I count my blessings. I feel connected again to life, happiness, and others.
