Movement Control Order From The View Of A Burn Survivor
The government thought that the message was clear, everyone to stay home, social distancing from one another.
This is not the first time I am being confined to a place, like a bridge between two stories, I can’t help but to compare and connect it to my post-burn care experience.
Instead of complaining, living in fear and viewing things negatively, concentrate on what we can do at home, be creative. If we have been procrastinating on certain projects with an excuse of not having the time to do so, this is the time to complete it. Even with the restriction in movement, we can always be thankful for what we have, for there are others who have less.
During this period, we can see the best and the worst in people. On one side of the coin, hardship and suffering can make a person become bitter, losing hope, blaming others for their misery, resorting to crime, etc. However, on the other side, there are people who remain caring, compassionate and helpful despite experiencing the same situation.
