Transition of Thoughts

Weaving thoughts into words

Oscillate

Oscillate

As the pandemic went on,

her emotions oscillated between hope and depression.

As the pandemic went on,

she was aghast in particular at people’s reluctance to follow key health procedures.

As the pandemic went on,

she felt her life going into a downward spiral.

      Thanks Beverly :). Oh it definitely is quite a challenge to keep oneself motivated day after day. But am still hopeful that there will be light at the end of the tunnel one day.

  4. It’s difficult to reverse the flow of the spiral into an upward one, especially when it goes on and on. It’s tough to be on the sidelines of living 🙁

      Oh it sure is quite difficult to get up and hope for the best when things are down and it all seems dark. But then, with vaccines out there I still believe that we have a way out or maybe am just hoping for the best. Fingers crossed!

      Oh it sure is. I guess it is even more important than ever for all of us to talk about how important mental health is for our well being as a society and humanity in general.

  7. A quadrille many of us relate to.

      Thanks Kim :). I guess we all are going through a situation like this in our own ways.

  8. This has been such a difficult time for most everyone, but some people have been affected more than others. It’s definitely stressful.

      Oh yes definitely. Hopefully with the vaccines, we all finally have a light at the end of the tunnel. Touchwood.
