Freya: For me lockdown gave me a chance to leave an abusive relationship however I know for others it has created a trapped sense of life.

I think people have become a lot more cautious and sometimes in a negative way. I think relationships have either grown a lot stronger or have been pulled apart. For me lockdown gave me a chance to leave an abusive relationship however I know for others it has created a trapped sense of life. It has definitely had a negative affect on mental health due to the isolation being forced not just self isolating but general isolation and loneliness. Crime has increased due to lack of jobs as well as homelessness and the economy has suffered as have we

Kristy: Relationships are breaking I think because of mental health and so many life’s are being taking die to mental health illnesses.

In my opinion I feel like everything is dividing as covid is a tragic thing that has happened but it’s honestly affecting everyone’s health including their mental health, relationships are breaking I think because of mental health and so many life’s are being taking die to mental health illnesses. I do feel that crime is going up due to the lack of jobs atm and therefore people are having to depend on themselves as they can’t afford stuff but I feel people are always going to be there for one another but life is a struggle for everyone during these times

Taylor Aust: I do think this pandemic opened people’s eyes involving physical and mental health.

I think that everyone handles world changes and stress differently, especially something as life changing as COVID-19. I do think this pandemic opened people’s eyes involving physical and mental health. In the last year more people have been opening up about their struggles and trying to better themselves. As a society we have a long way to go, but I think we could definitely be moving in the right direction.

Tania: We have a lot of work to do on ourselves before we should get into a relationship.

People who commit crimes I believe majority of them are hurt and emotional and suffer from a lot of trauma. Hence why we have teens and young adults committing crimes at such a young age. I’m from Philly so I see this very often and it’s sad but I believe that we need more mental health centers for our youth especially in the black community. I think that would help us even the slightest bit The pandemic is very historical. The whole entire world shut down for like a year so that we can contain a virus that are killing thousands of people everyday. I believe that the shut down was needed for the world especially the U.S. it helped many people form business and create ideas, take time to analyze their mental health, value friends and family etc. as tragic as the deaths were I definitely believe that the pandemic was needed for us to reset and grow. Granted we still have a lot of work to do but that was a start I can go on about this for days. Dating in this day and age is incredibly difficult. You got hurt people out here hurting people and it creates an endless cycle. I’m gen z so most of our parents were born in the 60s-70s (at least the older ones) most of us came from single parent households or had to bounce from mom and dads house. So a lot of those who grew up without fathers and mothers definitely lack a different areas and they were never taught how to clean it up. Everyone is so obsessed with “relationship goals” and flexing for the internet nobody’s really checking to see if they’re actually happy. Social media makes it hard for relationships, “toxic” is a trend, cheating is normal, etc. we have a lot of work to do on ourselves before we should get into a relationship or that cycle is just going to keep on repeating itself

Altgirl: We will never be able to have a save enviroment.

It seems to be quite zynic….Our generationi s troubled with major concerns (high study loans, recessions, terror attacks, the climate change) We will never be able to have a save enviroment…like our parents and grandparents did But on the other hand, we speak about mental health, political problems etc. but the elder generations laugh it off….the young generation wants to be heard

Emily: Focusing on mental health, communication, and understanding would help in so many different areas.

I’ve seen a lot of ugly in this world. But I’ve also encountered some pretty amazing people.

Sometimes we get overwhelmed and only think/hear about the bad parts of people or things in general. But there are good people out there. Those who help lift, support, and encourage you.

Currently, I feel that we all need to focus on our mental health. Some people don’t focus on it enough or simply joke about it. Going to a therapist doesn’t mean you’re crazy. We all need help sometimes. Focusing on mental health, communication, and understanding would help in so many different areas. Whether it’s related to crime, relationships, illness, racism etc. It’s not going to solve everything. But it’s a start.

I try not to get overwhelmed by the negativity or bad things in this world. But its tough.

Idk if that all made sense 😅I tend to ramble

Fayth Woodward: I think covid has ruined many relationships

Okay, so personally here in the states I think that people are very entitled to their opinions that they think are facts. Because I covid we were forced to stay home which led to many people spending way too much time scrolling. This formed many opinions that people believed were facts and also created a culture where people became bullies. I think covid has ruined many relationships and honestly I think as a government, they should’ve done more to address the major health concern in our nation which is obesity.

Amanda Kirby: We have come so far during modern times but continue to fight over the same issues of resources and land.

A fraction of people are lucky enough to have blinders on to not see the majority of the worlds problems. Wealth seems to pay for the arrogance of food insecurity, health supply shortages, and power. We have come so far during modern times but continue to fight over the same issues of resources and land, it’s almost like we have stalled as a group. It’s annoying because as a species, we can do better, but nothing seems to be worth it in many countries eyes unless there is a high profit included. I think it will continue to get worse the more governments are led by greed.

It’s a grim way of looking at it, but it seems to be a modern type of Darwinism that includes capitalism as a factor

Alyssa Peters: Many people are struggling with their mental health, relationships.

I believe that it is important to address the issues everyone is facing worldwide do to the pandemic. COVID has directly affected many people in various ways. Many people are struggling with their mental health, relationships, work-life balance, socializing, etc. Over the past several years technology has advanced to acclimate to this pandemic but with that being said we lose the face to face contact that is sometimes need it. Due to Covid many have isolated themselves which can cause depression, anxiety, and substance abuse issue.
I feel strongly about the topic of acknowledging this issues and working together to find solutions.
