The planet that we live on won't last forever. At this rate, we are treating it. We won't be able to live on it too soon. The question is threw. How soon before the beautiful planet we live on finally turns to dust, we have to find another place to inhabit, to keep us alive.
Viruses have been around for 1000 years. One thing can be guaranteed, they are all deadly. Each has its own mortality rate. Some are deadlier than others. Viruses attack us from within and can kill us. Thankfully though because of our medical advancements. The mortality rate has gone down. So no matter what comes, we have a better chance to live. But what if a virus comes that we didn't see coming? A virus that can kill and for certain people have long term effects. The best way to deal with it before it gets worse is to stay locked down. Stay away from your families. Don't hug, high five, kiss, or even come close to touch people. Just imagine if a terrible virus came like that nowadays. Think about how lost we would be. Well, that virus came this year and is still here. What was the best solution for it? Stay locked down or stay at home as the medical experts say. They believed it would work. But it didn't because people still died and got sick. Money was lost, jobs were lost and family remembers were lost. But the biggest thing most of us lost was something we take for granted. That thing some of us lost was our sanity. Most of us became insane and lost our minds. Months have gone by and people are still insane. Some of our sanity is beginning to come back. But just like many of us lost our sanity. It will take time to get back. Maybe months or even a year. Hopefully, with all the good news coming out, the minds of people come back. Our sanity returns and we come better mentally. Smile and realize that our past lives weren't so bad after all. The after-effects of lockdowns got to everyone. By losing your sanity, you go crazy. Many people this past year have gone crazy. Crimes have gone up because of it. Alcoholism and addictions in general have gone up. But the thing that has gone up the most is suicides. That is how crazy the world has become. Some have just chosen not to live in it anymore. Surrendering to the cold world we live in. To think that is how bad the world has gotten. Is it the sad reality we live in? In which some just don't wanna live in it. It is not because they were weak, it is because there was just too much stress to contain in one brain that the poor souls felt they had no choice. We all have a choice but it all leads back to what most lost. To become insane is an odd experience that is filled with panic attacks, weird thoughts, and explainable reactions to the littlest of things. This all leads to some sort of addiction. Those addictions could be alcoholism, addiction to pills, cutting, eating, the addictions that the lockdowns lead to are endless. The loss of sanity seemed and still seems to be endless as more lockdowns start. The fact of the matter is, did lockdowns help? People ultimately have free will. Some chose not to wear masks and go to big gatherings. Thus spreading the virus more and more. The cycle of the never-ending virus continues. But that is the society we live in. Those who don't listen might not care and still be fine. While others suffer within because of them. Will the next year bring something new? Some kind of hope that people can hold on to and never let go. Regain the sanity that was lost and hopes the mental battle this virus started ends. 100 years ago when there was a deadly virus, people got over it. They had no technology. The virus will be gone one day. This means the time to find that one thing, that we lost can return. It will take time for it to return. But the mental struggle will end, people's sanity can return. One day smiles again and is able to live in a normal world. Not just normal but maybe better.
