It’s hard to stay away from others and wear a mask but it’s about ‘empathy’ – caring for others if not yourself. Lately, I’ve noticed that some younger people do not wear masks. Not to diss young people BUT some often feel invincible. The thing is, it’s not just about them.
Also, many people feel that isolation infringes on their rights. How friggin’ selfish. You don’t block a fire exit, eh? We all have a right to our bad feelings but they should not put others at risk or compromise others' safety.
Many people do care about others, not just nurses or doctors. Many people are doing their part or the right thing. However, our ‘sacrifices’ need to be second nature. Being nice or caring feels good!
Some people believe that wealth makes you happy. I disagree. Sure, having money helps, but I have never felt more like a lottery winner than when I was giving. Really! There are so many charities helping out in the pandemic that they are quite easy to find online.
