Part of me hopes that we have another lockdown as a result of the Omicron variant. So many lives have been lost, the virus has undoubtedly caused mental duress across the globe, and I’m fortunate to be in a position where a lockdown wouldn’t impact me as much as it would others (which I obviously acknowledge), but life truly slowed down and subconsciously there was a sense of comfort knowing I could take the time to work on myself without missing out on anything happening on the outside.

Me too, I have anxiety and panic disorder and being in lockdown was a godsend. I hate having to keep up with people, go places, put in the social effort and knowing there was nowhere to go was so great. The pandemic didn't make me anxious as I'm pro vaxxed and stayed distanced and safe even before they were offered. I'm so anxious now that things have opened up and people are reaching out again. Having to deal with nobody in person for anything was so helpful for my mental health. I got back into healthy eating and fitness at home. I loved how everything slowed down. I feel guilty about it. I am so blessed to have a safe job where I can wfh. While I thrived, I recognize so many people suffered and died or lost loved ones and it breaks my heart. It's made me realize how much I hate the rat race and how demanding life is.

The lockdown made me realize how much I like other people. Before I stayed to myself, but being forced to be alone almost drove me crazy. During the initial lockdown I only quarantined for three months. Of course I was careful, I still carry my hand sanitizer with me everywhere I go. There will not be another lockdown in the US for covid, you can stay at home if you don’t feel safe or take another booster shot if you think that will help. But lockdowns are costly and can negatively impact mental health too.

May be I am not that selfish. I look at the small businesses that got affected, the hourly wagers that lost jobs and the US economy. I pray there is no more lockdowns.

Most of the people that got unemployment were getting paid more on that than working. Bring back lockdown #2021

People truly suffer during the lockdowns, not to mention the supply chain and economic impacts of another one. Please set personal boundaries in your life instead of hoping for ruin in others.’
