Confronting The Unknown

We previously had an enemy that was external and was the cause of our suffering, and we had someone to be angry with. At this moment the entire globe has an external enemy that’s not exclusively linked to anyone. It is a common invisible enemy that impacts on everyone’s quality of life.
Vesna Brzev

Everyone is talking about the “new reality” and that we have to adapt to it. It is really difficult to accept that there is another reality besides our subjective one, as well as the one in which we have lived for as many years as each of us has seen. Of course, everything containing the adjective “new” is a little scary. Nobody actually knows what that really means in this case. What we know is how things are now and here, within us and around us.

In that sense, this summer is something we’ve never had before. We had summers that we spent in poverty when we devised ways to entertain our children and ourselves, sometimes we just ate, but we had something that was external, some enemy who got us into that situation. We had someone to be angry with. At this moment the entire globe has an external enemy that’s not exclusively linked to anyone. It is a common invisible enemy that impacts on everyone’s quality of life.

Well, this year we won’t be going to any seaside, overseas, on travels that we were promised, or which we promised ourselves. We will be tied to one place, with minimal movements, in line with the amount of fear we fell and recommendations we receive. We perhaps used to think that things were better for someone here, there or anywhere than they were for us. Now we don’t have that impression.

We perhaps used to think that things were better for someone here, there or anywhere than they were for us. Now we don’t have that impression. It is the same everywhere and “the grass isn’t greener” anywhere.

It is the same everywhere and “the grass isn’t greener” anywhere. Most young people are probably upset, with the summer completely wasted. Older people have some vaguely formulated fear that their last summer might be passing… This summer doesn’t come easy for anyone.

On the collective front, most people are probably more concerned about work, the survival of their own business, their company, preserving their jobs. From that perspective, the idea of a summer holiday seems very far away. Many have been left jobless, both here and in countries that are far more economically developed.

The state has its own concerns, which we cannot influence as individuals, except through our personal responsibilities related to following recommendations.

Such a summer will not be forgotten. People suffering from higher levels of anxiety will be afraid even when a reason disappears. Those with a different personality structure and mechanisms for defence and coping will find another way to handle things.

However, what is certain is that a lot will change. If we don’t change something ourselves, another common enemy will emerge against which humanity will have to unite. I hope that humanity will smarten up.
