That feeling of being mute and numb to everything going on around you is what I felt in the last six months- unable to do certain things that were part of my everyday life. I guess the adverse effects of the events that 2020 began with caught up with me, and I was just unable to get myself to do certain things such as writing- something that is a pure catharsis for me, which is one of the few reasons why I have not posted a thing since July 2020. However, during this period, more than I usually do, I learnt a lot by listening to peoples’ commentaries and opinions, and my conclusion is that most of us are uncertain and unsure of what the future holds and we are gradually accepting the truth that life is not always in black and white- it comes with its nuances.
On a broad level, this is a good thing, as generally, the expectation is that life turns either left or right, so seeing a deviation from this embedded rigid and inflexible way of thinking is good, and this is encouraging. Perhaps it will make us more understanding of each other and less critical of people that do not possess a herd mentality and refuse to go along with popular opinion. Hopefully, it makes us appreciate an individual for who he or she is, and not because the individual agrees with our way of thinking. Hopefully, we are less quick to propagating this ‘cancel’ culture that seems to be ubiquitous and trendy because it is the thing the ‘influencers’ do, and we take a moment to understand the reasoning behind people’s thoughts even if we disagree with them.

May the oddities turn out in your favour. Happy New Year!
