At this point, regardless of how far in the future, one or five years, hopefully some idea of ‘normal’ has returned. Normal. Something everyone has desired since the beginning of the pandemic. Something so far out of reach it is almost sickening. Now, I do hope that in the future, whoever is reading this is not going through what we are but if they are, hopefully this can help.
Everyone desires the world to go back to normal. They all want, including myself, a chance to go back to what everyday life was a year ago. However, times have changed. While people still desire things to go back to the way they were, desire has become somewhat of a new concept. One of the things that has brought much confusion to this pandemic to me is the fact that people desire things to go back to normal, yet they don’t do everything they possibly can to reach their idea of normalcy. Desire to me, has moved from wanting things to go back to how they were, to people wanting everyone to accept that this is a real issue, and the only way for things to return to normal is for people to change. Now, people desire change.
