100 word fiction: Pandemic fatigue

As the days kept passing by and the seasons kept changing, they started to feel that the juice they had in the society had no value. Everyone irrespective of their social status was equally at the mercy of the virus. While initially, they were very eager to know more about the pandemic, fatigue started to set in over time making them incurious.

They were tired of all the negativity. But despite this, though there were days when it was bright and sunny outside, they didn’t deem it fit to enjoy themselves when everyone around was struggling to make ends meet.

  1. Lovely ways! Thank you for joining in this week!

  2. Initial days of Pandemic we’re tough but now everyone has learnt the art of tackling it.

      Or shall we say people have just become really frustrated wondering when it will all end.

  3. That was a nice and short read.

  4. An excellent response and very topical in this day and age.

  5. gemini1420

    Sweet read!

  6. magicalmysticalteacher

    Taking a shady pathway is a delight!

  7. Time is the best teacher and even in this pandemic, with time, we have learnt a lot.

    • transitionofthoughts

      Oh yes it definitely is. We sure have learnt so much about staying safe in the past 6 months. It’s important that we don’t get complacent and put these learnings to good use.

  8. Madhu Bindra

    Very relatable. Back in March, everyone was scared, curious, and waiting for the pandemic to end. Now all have learnt to live with it.

    • transitionofthoughts

      That’s so true. We have learnt a lot. But it’s still important to not get complacent and keep taking all precautions as before as the pandemic hasn’t yet ended.

  9. Short and sweet..the pandemic has meant different things to different people. it is a matter of perspective I guess.For me it has been a positive and active phase though homebound.

    • transitionofthoughts

      Oh it sure has. It’s great that this has been an active phase for you :). This period has given people so much time to spend with their family and loved one. And also to discover themselves and do things they always wanted to. It’a a time we may not get back again.

  10. Very apt. We have learnt the new normal and live with it. Sadly there are many who struggle to make ends meet as you said.

    • transitionofthoughts

      Yeah many are lucky to have this time to spend with their family and loved ones. But there are sadly so many others who are struggling to make ends meet. For them, I think this pandemic will leave quite a lasting impact quite sadly.

  11. The pandemic did create some heartbreaking situations in the country. You’ve put across what that time was like very well.

  12. pythoroshan

    Frankly I’m exhausted with this pandemic. I don’t see it ending anytime soon and that worries me more…

    • transitionofthoughts

      I completely agree doc. And I am sure all of you will be even more exhausted than us. Honestly not sure how this is all going to end the way things are going. Am doubtful that a vaccine by itself can make the pandemic suddenly disappear.

  13. I guess it’s now more depressing really can’t enjoy when the world is so much in pain

    • transitionofthoughts

      While I completely agree with you, there are so many who are just going about their lives and having fun without a care in the world. It’s just sad that this pandemic has brought out all the inequalities to the fore yet again. The poor seem to be struggling for survival.

  14. So true. The pandemic has been a reality check for a lot of us, a time to sort our priorities. At the same time, it is a struggle for a lot many.

    • transitionofthoughts

      I think that for me is the biggest irony of all. Some have so much time that they don’t know what to do while others are just struggling to survive and have 3 meals a day :/.

  15. In such a few words, you have expressed the depression in people and how everyone is trying to meet the ends in the best possible way.

    • transitionofthoughts

      Thanks Geethica :). I guess this pandemic is changing are lives in ways that we wouldn’t have ever imagined.

  16. Yea pandemic has brought everyone on same platform. You have brilliantly executed all the prompts in this story.

  17. If not anything, I think the pandemic has taught us to have more gratitude in life.

    • transitionofthoughts

      I hope that we all have enough and more gratitude especially considering what all we have gone through in the past couple of months. It’s important to appreciate and be thankful for what we have even if its something as simple as being able to have three meals a day. Sadly there are so many who are even struggling for that.

  18. You’ve spoken about our situation in just 100 words. It is apt and so true that I can only relate to it. Hopefully we will be back stronger!

    • transitionofthoughts

      I am sure we will emerge stronger out of this crisis though yes it will take time sigh!

  19. I think many of us feel this way or have felt this way at some point in the last few months. You have captured this sentiment really well in just 100 words.
