Bordering On Insanity



We guilt people for not adhering to the rules


We keep encouraging them to be patient and ask them to be grateful.


Hang in there we say, gosh, I’ve even said it myself.


But the reality is, you’ve been in lock down for over three months without so much as a whimper – so perhaps we should lay off the ‘be patient’.


If there were an Olympics for patience, you’d be a world champion at this point.


Reality is a bitch.


There’s patience and then there’s insanity.


At what point does it all start getting a little ridiculous?


You can’t divorce people from nature and expect them to be ok.


This is not how it works.


We can get comfortable with being uncomfortable, that’s fine.


We can definitely do much to create certainty from uncertainty - that will help.


And there’s certainly plenty of things to be grateful for, so it is important to keep reminding our selves of that


But let’s not kid ourselves, none of this is natural


So let’s accept that fact and not be so hard on our selves
