Musings – It’s time to let go of the COVID guilt

I’ve decided to start a regular, or irregular, column with my current musings. These musings are as much for me as for anyone else. Expect random streams of consciousness and don’t assume that my position is fixed on any opinions expressed.

Today’s musing, it’s time to let go of the COVID guilt. Times are hard for a lot of people, but not for everyone. Despite the challenges, people still work, marry, and have children. Life goes on, even if it’s a little weird. Some people will have used this time to do something good, lose some weight, tackle that novel, remodel a bathroom, whatever. It’s can be tough to feel good about accomplishments when others are hurting and when so much around us seems out of whack.

Let it go. Don’t feel bad for doing something good.

On the other side, if you’ve put on a COVID 15, binge-watched your way through Tiger King for the 7th time, and not bothered to clean your bathroom, it’s still okay. Everyone is dealing with the oddities of 2020 differently. Let go of the guilt and move on.
