I’ve been meaning to post this for some time and I spoke about it to a couple of friends and they agreed. They felt the same way.
Have you noticed things just feel different since the pandemic? I’m no conspiracy theorist but the world isn’t the same. I appreciate we have all been through some tough times with work, the lockdowns, vaccinations and the disruption to our lives but ever since we returned to ‘normal’ things just feel different. I don’t know whether we are just older or traumatised by the experience but I personally don’t seem to be as happy and content as I once was.
Things on the surface appear to be normal and nothing has changed that much for me personally (I did lose dad which was awful) but it just doesn’t feel right and I fear we will never get back to that ‘world’ again. It’s like we are living in some sort of matrix now. Maybe I’m still grieving, I don’t know but stuff doesn’t excite me as much as it used to.
I feel a lot of people have become less social. Including me.
