Through access to social media, we can easily connect with our family and friends from all parts of the world.
We know that death must come to us all but it’s never usually something we can readily accept, especially when it hits close to us, such as the death of a close friend, or a relative, or perhaps most dreadfully one of our own children.
Death is often a sore subject and one that adults like to avoid talking about.
One’s attitude is defined as a set way of thinking and feeling about something.
Across the globe, we have seen the emergence of COVID-19 deniers and in the case of Guyana it has been no different.
It has been common practice for human beings to highlight the weaknesses of others.
After months of being indoors, people have found unhealthy ways of coping, like consuming excessive amounts of alcohol.
Many of us have either watched or heard stories about serial killers and there are a few questions that we naturally ask: Why would they kill all those people?
Because we are humans and not robots, we will encounter differences and disagreements in our various relationships and how we deal with them as they crop up will determine the success or failure of those unions.
If there is one thing this pandemic has taught some of us it is how precious and valuable life really is.
Guyana has been in a partial “lockdown” since the start of April, following the confirmation of our first COVID-19 case on March 11.
Across the world people are protesting the murder of George Floyd by the police in the United States.
Last week we looked at the psychological effects of lockdown and the importance of the population’s mental health wellbeing at an unprecedented time like this.
Some researchers have called quarantine and lockdown due to COVID-19 possibly one of the biggest “psychological experiments” on earth.
There has been uproar in our society about why, despite there being an information overload on the novel coronavirus, that most men still seem to be overlooking safety precautions by not wearing masks, not practicing social distancing and “liming” when they should be at home.
Since many places across the world have been forced to institute lockdowns, where citizens are forced to stay in our homes and go out only when absolutely necessary, we have seen an increase in the domestic violence cases.
Has this time at home made you reevaluate what it is you really want to be doing in life?
This is a time when most of us are finding new hobbies, whether it is cooking, gardening, or reading.
No one knows how long this pandemic will last and by now we ought to realise that we are in this for the long haul.
Death comes to us all. It is mostly unexpected but a variety of factors, such as the way we choose to live our lives and the choices we make, could give us an idea of how long we will be around.
