Arguing

Coronavirus exists & is more dangerous than flu – have you had a fight about it already? 🙄

I have Covid-19 behind me already and I can tell that the virus is real & that it was worse than flu for me & I still do not feel 100% well.

And as I’ve been sharing my story and my advices to people on e.g. how to be tested, I had plenty people thanking me 🤗 (especially people in Poland as I explained exacty what to do to be tested) but I also had plenty haters laughing at me 🙄, telling me that it is all fake 😳, that it is all planned (God knows by whom 🤷🏼‍♀️), that people should not be tested etc

I’ve been talking to those people trying to explain to them that they’re wrong, they were explaining to me that I’m wrong and I just gave up 🤷🏼‍♀️ I just blocked them 🚫. Maybe we were both right on some level and the truth is somewhere inbetween or maybe we’re both wrong 🤷🏼‍♀️

But in the end ARGUING (OR ACTUALLY DISPUTING) IS GOOD & much needed as you need to get some other PERSPECTIVE from time to time 👍. You can’t just live in a bubble and surround yourself only with people who share your vision, who have same opinion, like same political party etc. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Sometimes you need to leave that bubble to gain perspective, to see the problems through somebody else’s eyes, to see that maybe a thing you’re fighting for isn’t as perfect/clear as you may think.

BUT at the same time there are people who just think that they know everything 🙄, who will never admit to being wrong (when you’re talking about facts and things that can be only one-sided) 🤦🏼‍♀️

You can keep giving them facts, showing them proofs that you’re right (e.g. some numbers or things you can measure) and they will just keep telling you you’re wrong 🤷🏼‍♀️

Just let go. You won’t convince them to your point of view just as much as you won’t ever be convinced to their 🤷🏼‍♀️
But never argue over taste or likes. We are all different and we all like different things 😉

In short – disputing is ok when both sides have respect towards one another and when we learn from each other👍. If people just stay stupborn or even call you stupid just block them. You don’t want needless fights 😉

Adventages of covid/lockdown situation

This year has been tough to all of us, for sure. We’ve been scared 😖, we’ve been anxious 🤯, we’ve been sad 😞, heartbroken of cancelled plans 💔 etc etc.
:::
But maybe there are some advantages of this situation too? 🤷🏼‍♀️
I’ve talked about it some time ago that Covid-19/lockdown taught us to appreciate what we got 🙏, taught us to appreciate our health and family ❤, it made us slow down and live day by day.
:::
But now, couple months later, I see some other adventages too 😀 We all were forced (in a way) to get to know our countries more, to travel within our borders 😁. You know the saying „the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence” 🌱– but what if it isn’t? What if you haven’t looked at your grass properly? ☺
:::
I’ve heard/seen so many stories even here, on instagram, of Polish people who always travel abroad for holidays and because of Covid-19 they were forced to stay in Poland for the summer so they visited some cities they’ve never been to and were totally charmed!😍
:::
I’ve read about an American girl who always goes to Greece for the summer and this year she couldn’t so she ended up doing a trip around the US visiting some of the states she’s never been to before and she fell in love with her own country! 🤩
:::
Another positive example is how this whole lockdown showed us that so many things can be done online 📩, that people don’t need to meet face to face all the time and e.g. go for a conference to another continent every couple months 🤷🏼‍♀️.
:::
Even at my work they kept telling us that we can’t work from home, that it is not possible to make it happen system-wise as we wouldn’t be able to use our systems from home and wouldn’t have access to common disks/folders 📂. Covid-19 happened and suddenly it was all possible and I’ve been working from home for 5 months now 😅
:::
I’m not saying that 2020 is a good year and that it is all great, of course it’s not. But let’s try and see some positives! 😊

These times will teach us a lot!

Not being able to plan anything now drives me crazy 😫 but those crazy times really can teach us A LOT! 😉
:::
Planning is my strenght 💪 Whenever I have a new dream to fulfill or new project I want to start working on I divide it into parts and plan it out throughout a week/month/year. Thanks to planning I know what step I need to make to be closer to reaching my goal. When I have everything planned I feel calm because I have it all under control, all „in order”. Now it’s all gone.
:::
We were supposed to go to Spain in April, obviously that didn’t happen but I’d still like to go ASAP. The question is when? 🤷🏼‍♀️ When will it be ok to travel? Who knows? Time will tell 🕰.
:::
But it’s not only about the travelling 🌍. Due to economic crisis that we’ll be dealing with right now we don’t know what we stand on financially 📉. Can I still go to Spain? Or should I keep all my savings as bad times might come – lower salary, maybe even losing a job? 🤷🏼‍♀️
:::
I wanted to focus on self-development this year. I wanted to do a photography course in the summer 📸 and go back to University in autumn to start doing another degree 👩‍🎓. It all costs though. Should I still do it?
:::
But let’s not panic ⚠️. These times are even more challenging than we all thought they’d be but they will teach us SO MUCH! 🤗
:::
I am sure we are all learning to appreciate what we have now. I might have tough times at work but I am still lucky to still be employed as so many people lost their jobs already 😞
:::
What’s more, we are learning to be more here & now, to focus on present and live one day at a time 🙏 as it is so hard to plan anything 😅. I am learning to stop planning far ahead and focus on present week and on what’s happening now.
:::
These times teach us to be always prepared for surprises, that you are never able to plan EVERYTHING out. They teach us to be patient 😇
:::
I am more than sure that we will come out of the lockdown wiser, stronger and more patient 💪. We just need to hold a bit longer. It will be all better soon! 😊
