I am good at hide and seek games.
It’s been over a month now, quarantined at home. Constantly reading about how life was tough for those working outside or at home, I felt guilty for staying at home and not working. Therefore, I decided to hide my sadness, and anxiety behind a facade of positivity.
To be honest, I have been living like this since I was a child and definitely my entire life. I understood that I was fortunate to have all my basic needs of life. So, I loved to look at the positive sides of things.
However, I was getting laughed and ridiculed at, for being overly positive!
People began to think of me as a joke. Sadly, no matter how I tried to explain my positive outlook, I was being called unrealistic and “had my head in the clouds….”
Each time I fought to stand up for my beliefs, someone would fight even harder to destroy my hopes and dreams.
“You need to prepare for the worst!” was their reasoning. To a certain extent, I agree.
Because life itself is constantly changing…..
And furthermore, I have hope in humanity….
But for now, I just need to empty those tears into the ocean!
