Unarguably, it is a serious challenge for all the human being acorss the globe. But ‘the only thing we have to fear is the fear itself.’
Here are some statements from the book Jordan B. Peterson 12 Rules for life that I’ve found inspiring. (My friend recently told me that the author is seriously ill and treated in Russia for addiction withdrawal. It’s not his fault. He was addicted to powerful prescription drugs that meant to calm his anxiety when his wife was dying for cancer. My thoughts and prayers are with him. Mental health and physical health are REAL THINGS.)
