Original Message Seems like more people are getting vaccinated. I've seen posts from people that got their 2nd dose. So it's safe to say that we're in the home stretch. Things are gonna slowly open.

You know how they say social media sites like FB, IG, and Twitter have decreased people's social skills? For instance when you see people go out, often times people at the dinner table are just looking at their phones. They already were starting to lose the skills of interacting face to face. People have already started to transition to the screen, internet based communication.

But now with the Coronavirus, it made things much worse than the phone could ever do. Having social media on my phone did make it less natural for me to communicate face to face. I'd always need my phone as a security.

But the Coronavirus blows that away. Not only do we have our phones, but we've been told to social distance. Wear a mask whenever you go out. Often times, people would stay locked in their homes.

So imagine being locked in, wearing masks, and doing most of your communication on your phone. It's going to be hard to be able to meet people face to face now, especially without a mask. 1. We're used to staying away 2. We're used to having a mask and 3. Now we lack the social skills.

So while I was scared like heck with the virus, now I'm also scared to get back out in the world again when things open up. I've lost my socialization skills. It doesn't feel comfortable for me anymore. Just imagine the last year, I almost cried anytime someone got near me. I'm just not used to being normal around people anymore.

There are times I sit home and cry. But then other times I don't know if I can leave. It's sorta like that movie where the guy went to jail but then killed himself once he got out, because he got used to jail. I'm actually nervous to go back to normal. I don't know it anymore.
