I don’t think the world is in a very good place since everyone has been affected by covid in a sense. covid sparked higher crime, since people are more irritable and hateful. i think the divide politically is terrible, everyone is trying to prove how “right” they are in a sense without thinking of how it affects everyone around them. i really think everyone is more independent and self reliant since last year due to covid and the election, but i dont really think thats a good thing. individuals make up society, society is run by the people as a whole, not just a bunch of individual voices. but in saying that individuality isn’t terrible as long as it doesn’t cost someone else pain and hurt. (dont mistake pain and hurt for preference though)
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.
