When Will We Stop Talking About COVID?

In March 2020 I was 26 years old living in New Hampshire, only had one dog, and a completely different job. Now I’m 28 (almost 29) back in New Jersey with 2 dogs, engaged, and 2 jobs past that job in 2020.

I don’t think I’ll stop talking about COVID any time soon. It has changed parts of me, changed my life, and even now as it’s becoming less of a daily focus in life, it still matters.

I can’t imagine how it just be for people who were in even more integral stages of life than I was. High school seniors or college freshman. Missing proms and graduations or even those who have had to reschedule their weddings 3-4 times.

I don’t think we’ll ever stop talking about, even if it’s depressing and overdone. It has changed SO MUCH of how daily life is and I think about it almost every day.

  1. It’s so true. I knew young people waiting to get scouted for college in spring sports in 2020. Sadly, it didn’t happen. No scholarships. Changed everyone’s plans. My own son just recently took his first in person college class after 2 years of all online. It definitely had it affect. Stay strong😊

  2. I think we need to quit talking about it. It’s time to move on. It’s pretty much over with. By continuously talking about it, we are just allowing fear, worry and anxiety to rule and for the sake of our mental health, we can’t have it happen.

    1. COVID really messed with a lot of people’s lives, plans and/or mental health. Maybe with time we’ll let it go and learn to forget, but for now that not easy at all.
