Since the covid-19 outbreak, people have been experiencing different set of emotions. Beginning with fear, anxiety it has now reached distress and grief.
In a pandemic like situation, we cannot ascertain of being transmitted with the virus.
Initiated with losing things we loved, such as gyms, restaurants to missing people who passed away due to the pandemic, it has not been an easy journey.
To adapt with the changing situation, and the feeling of boredom or crankiness, increased conflicts among couples, everything is natural.
Much of what people have been missing from their lives is the hobbies and things that made them happy.
But it has also made us realise of what are the things we must value, the things that play a vital role in making us happy during the times of distress.
Facing these emotions is not exceptional, however, if these start consuming too much, or make you feel suicidal, you must seek help.

And remember , “This too shall pass”.
