It appears these beauties glow at midnight as if guiding you with out anticipating one thing in return. Which will sound philosophical to you — however, hey, it’s 2021 — and we’re surviving a pandemic — we will be philosophical if we need to. The firefly makes me consider the concepts of Empathy, Kindness and Selflessness — which all of us want greater than ever after the pandemic.
After we began in to the 12 months 2020 — none of us anticipated the onslaught of the pandemic, or what it will imply to your entire world. What we have been studying felt like a scene from a science-fiction film — that the world had Halted. Not less than, I by no means thought that someday, I might get up to a whole lockdown.
Coronavirus pandemic was like a “concern of the unknown” the place not solely 1000’s have misplaced a beloved member of the family or buddy — however so many people even misplaced our sole approach of incomes a residing.
Combating a battle of survival from an unseen novel coronavirus has been actually powerful on all of humanity.
To me the pandemic appeared like time had stopped and I couldn’t assist however notice that we people actually take all the pieces with no consideration, be it any emotion, somebody’s effort or simply life usually.
PANDEMIC surely stumbled on with many life classes. Similar to each cloud has a silver lining to it (although I hate that phrase), so does a pandemic. If you wish to know the way pandemic has impacted us and what has it taught us then Learn on.
Issues You’ll Need to Take Away from the Pandemic
Not All Heroes Put on Capes
Sure, I might be beginning firstly from this explicit factor as surely not all heroes put on capes. They are often simply any human round you and that’s what pandemic has proved. To begin with, the healthcare staff, who put their lives on the road to offer healthcare companies to all those that have been affected by the virus.
Placing apart their households and life, they’re nonetheless working greater than ever. Some individuals would possibly argue that it’s their job anyway — or possibly their obligation. However, simply cease and suppose for a second, contemplate your self of their sneakers and suppose what they’re doing even figuring out they might lose their life — yeah, it takes large braveness.
Many within the medical fied have misplaced their colleagues proper in entrance of their eyes, but are agency to battle inside the borders of their jobs and proceed with it. These ideas made me take into consideration gaining a brand new definition of heroes, and I hope you’ll too.
What About Tech? We Can Thank Tech for Retaining Us Afloat Through the Pandemic.
Let’s not overlook all of the tech and IT engineers right here as properly, who labored day and evening to create software program to join medical doctors and sufferers remotely. Aside from the coronavirus affected individuals there have been different sufferers of assorted diseases together with most cancers needing dire consideration too. Telehealth did play a big position in present occasions as properly.
Story of All – A Collective Narrative
All of us, irrespective of the place we stay on the earth or which race, faith, ethnicity, gender, color, age or caste we belong to, all of us have been affected by this pandemic both straight or not directly. So, for the primary time, all of us can fully relate it with one another and be nothing however Sort.
It was and nonetheless is a nightmare, however the promising work and supply of the vaccines and analysis are giving hope to humanity. Everyone seems to be working in the direction of one purpose e.g., to search out the treatment as quickly as doable to eradicate the coronavirus — or not less than we see the world working rapidly — collectively — to maintain the vaccines rolling out.
Future will not be Divided however United
The buzzwords of legal responsibility and vulnerability have at all times been in work administration. However, the outbreak of the coronavirus has proved that these phrases are hardly even right, not to mention concrete anymore.
As per the United Nations, roughly 25 million individuals everywhere in the world are anticipated to lose their jobs. Everybody goes to be affected by this pandemic that features an unemployed, low-income worker or excessive self-employed people.
Present occasions have proven how weak we people are, in reality, greater than ever.
Contemplating this digitalized period, the one factor is now extra clear than ever that social society web is now widening and in future work can be inclusive of all sorts of staff. Sanitization employees, meals and security employees, younger engineers, scientific researchers and the digital healthcare suppliers have been among the many first ones to react to the pandemic.
So, for my part, as soon as the pandemic is over, it’ll undoubtedly widen our mutual solidarity and kinship which can permit everybody to work collectively for a selected trigger — if we’ll? Will YOU?
Empathy, Kindness and Love Can Win
Empathy and Kindness go hand in hand. On this digital period, the place all of us are inclined to varied types of bullying or harassment or just negativity, the lockdown and pandemic proved that we have to break this curse.
On one hand, the pandemic had taken lives, it additionally allowed the perfect to return out of us, as people, too. We want one another — we want connectivity
The younger era of my nation has volunteered rather a lot amidst pandemic. From volunteering to offer rations to the individuals in amidst of lockdown to blood donations and volunteering on-line to offer psychological assist the perfect we are able to.
Frontline healthcare suppliers are nonetheless working laborious to assist the nation. Everybody in all international locations are attempting to play their half and focus greatest efforts on saving lives. In my nation and different international locations we have now seen individuals who have been cured of COVID-19 donated their plasma as properly.
As an alternative of sitting idly, some children even shaped on-line teams on Fb and different social channels in connecting everybody who wanted any type of assist. The social stigma round psychological well being has lastly made a constructive flip as properly. We see many free on-line counselling periods for stress administration — an important starting.
Not solely this, the lecturers who beloved speaking and bodily delivering lectures have put their greatest efforts ahead to be taught the expertise and use it for the betterment of their college students.
To me — the additional dedication of our lecturers is an incredible present of true empathy and kindness.
For the final 12 months — the pandemic 12 months (and we’re nonetheless going), it’s taught us that it doesn’t matter what, it’s at all times Kindness, Empathy and Love that Wins, and that these very substances will be utilized to deal with any disaster.
A Time of Self-Realization and Therapeutic
All of us have struggled within the 12 months 2020 — however if you’re nonetheless right here and studying this piece of writing, brace your self and provides your self a hug that you just made it out of 2020.
On the one hand, you will be completely satisfied for the sensation that you’re nonetheless right here on this planet — alternatively, final 12 months gave us an opportunity to Sit, to Rethink, to Declutter, to Restart ourselves and our lives.
I’m talking to each individual. Now we have all been quarantined at dwelling — we have now all been alone — we have now all misplaced one thing or somebody in someway. This makes is aperfect time for self-realization and for sustaining well being amidst pandemic.

However, I consider that these feelings of ours have extra to supply us. From shallow to deep perception and realization, our feelings are there. Blessings and struggling each come hand in hand collectively below the veil of such pandemics.
Please take a deep breath and hearken to me. One blessing within the final 12 months is that you just survived. Now ask, how will you play your half? Are you going to take a seat again and watch or can you are taking this signal from the universe and step ahead and do one thing extra together with your life? Nobody can play your life-part higher than you do.
Typically, when you’ve emotions that you’re a failure or you’ve failed you’re sad. Being caught at handmade all of these emotions worse. However, in case you look deeper at your emotions — there may be extra to it. There’s a lot to be handled in grief, disappointment, mourning, sympathy and empathy. The BEST NEWS — if you’re feeling these feelings — it merely exhibits that You Are A Human.
The final 12 months has been overwhelming — overwhelming, overwhelming. However it might simply imply that it’s a excessive time that we do our self-analysis.

Even after we have been terrified of expertise, it was a expertise that gave hope. It was additionally the compassion that didn’t give up in entrance of coronavirus.
I don’t know what precisely will emerge from this pandemic outbreak. However, I’m positive we should always not take well being with no consideration. We should always work collectively for a trigger with a hope for a greater hope.
