In tough times, the best way to overcome hardship is to lean on all of your loved ones — but the novel coronavirus pandemic has made that quite (literally!) impossible to do. Some may be quarantining in homes and apartments all alone, away from family members, friends, or colleagues or classmates, and social distancing efforts means you probably won’t be able to do all the things you normally do together. Regardless of how many people you live with or how many times you’ve been able to safely see loved ones, the quarantine lifestyle that’s necessary to keep COVID-19 at bay is far from easy.
Why not heed words of advice from those who have overcome all the issues we’re experiencing now? Take stock of the moment to remind yourself that the pandemic will come to an end one day, and find motivation to empower yourself to get through the situation as best as you can.
“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think, and loved more than you’ll ever know.” — A.A. Milne
