Old wounds resurfacing...An emotional response to Covid-19



Covid-19 has shaken the world. Whatever you believe, wherever you are, there’s one theme that has been consistent - we are all experiencing challenges, we are all experiencing emotions that we would rather not have to deal with, & we all want this to end so that our lives can go back to normal…


My question - what if things were to go back to normal, what then? What would our lives look like? What would we be doing? How would we be feeling? How would we act? How would we respond to adversity in the future?


Maybe, through Covid-19, we are not meant to go back to normal but rather it is some universal event that is set to move us forward into a more self-aware state where we are more accountable for ourselves, for our happiness, & well-being, to a place where we are kinder to ourselves and to others, where we act with more integrity, a place where we look within us to find our own source of purpose & passion, a place where we can live in love, peace, & harmony within ourselves & with each other? 


What has been activated through Covid-19? 


A lot of fear & a lot of worry, which is understandable. 


Dr Karl Albrecth has created an amazing illustration of fear and he basically organises all of the fears out there and places them into these 5 categories.
