I am Arturo, and the change that my life has had, as well as that of the people in my closest circle (my family), has been evident.
Fortunately, neither my family, nor I, nor any of our friends have suffered from this terrible disease. Which is reason enough to say thanks. But I can’t say that everything is fine with me, I don’t want to be ungrateful or unhappy. But I don’t want to lie to myself, it’s a reality. My life has changed!.
I am a young person and I had many plans especially for this year, I had described it on December 31, 2019. As a year of positive changes for my life, I had in mind to leave the country, it was already a decision made. However, as a result of this, I had to change my plans.
At first, I just thought it was a matter of a maximum of one month, or by far two months. I never thought that this would take so long since this is my fourth month, we are in the middle of the year. This is incredible … Now I think differently, now I think I should, and as a society, we must learn to live with this virus.
Yes, it is true that the ideal would be to continue staying everyone at home, and so things would improve. But at the same time, I think that we must retake our lives, that they will not be the same again, but we must do it. We must go back to the streets, and pursue our dreams. But we must understand that our life now will be different. This pandemic will change the behavior of society. Since this crisis is going to mean a before and after in the way we had to relate. It is learning to live with this, in my case I will take precautionary measures on the street, which I also hope that most people become aware of and do the same.
I plan to return to my plan to leave the country at the time that my country decides to open borders, but I will continue to have rigorous precautions, such as the use of a mask, the use of antibacterial gel, and constant hand washing, I do not plan to go to bars or clubs for a good time, not showing affection to people who are not sure if they are healthy, trying not to use public transport, or if necessary, taking all possible precautions.
The truth is that this is a little scary, but realistically I don’t think this is going to go away in a couple of months. It will surely take 1 or 2 years to say that things are going to return to normal.
