As we are in uncertain times right now, we must know about the effects of the Coronavirus. I wrote stories about it in The Netherlands. We need to follow our countries rules, but not everybody does that. Why can’t we handle that, why can’t we just follow the rules as the government tells us to do? And do you know how to be positive in a crisis like this? We should also try to live as normal as possible, I believe.
I wrote stories about rules and some updates here in The Netherlands:
- The Coronavirus in The Netherlands
- Coronavirus in The Netherlands — Update 21 March 2020
- Coronavirus in The Netherlands — Update 22 and 23 March 2020
- Coronavirus in The Netherlands — update 25 March 2020
Writing for Medium
I love writing here on Medium. It is like a community. I can express my feelings and park my thoughts for a while.
Emotions we have
A lot of people think emotions are weak when you show them. That is not the case. I believe it is strong when you use them. And talking about emotions: they don’t stop when you don’t use them. They will be still there, only you have to find them. Emotions are things you have been through as well and you wear them everywhere you set foot on the ground.
Do we know about affirmation? It is what we need these days. Especially the Coronavirus is hitting us.
We need to stop racism
Still, in 2020 we find racism everywhere. Especially online. I hate racism. And I believe we must stop racism, however, we do that.
