It has revealed plenty of truths about folks and it made many individuals pace up choices they delayed as a result of they didn’t wish to face their actual points and so they have been all the time hiding behind their work, their pals or their actions however when all of those distractions disappeared, the reality finally got here out.
With the divorce charge skyrocketing, friendships ending, folks transferring out of their houses, folks shedding jobs, 2020 certainly made folks act on how they actually really feel as a substitute of brushing their true emotions apart. The skeletons within the closet got here out, folks’s intentions turned crystal clear and their masks fell off as a result of it’s simple to be there when issues are good however folks present a unique aspect when issues get ugly. They present a aspect that you simply didn’t see earlier than. A aspect you didn’t see coming.

It jogged my memory that distance didn’t matter with some folks and it introduced them nearer in such troubling occasions however it additionally jogged my memory that some folks have been inches away from me but felt very far-off, very distant and out of attain. It confirmed me that the guarantees that have been made in a crowded room have been damaged as soon as the folks left. It jogged my memory that the pandemic may function the proper motive for somebody to contact you and investigate cross-check you or the proper excuse for somebody to vanish.
2020 is like an computerized filter. It filtered out the individuals who didn’t wish to be in my life. It made me recognize folks extra however it additionally made me despise a few of them.
