The Social Distancing Pandemic

The Nightcap


APERITIF:

“Words, like nature, half reveal and half conceal the soul within.” – Alfred Lord Tennyson



Stay Away

Who knew that there could be a pandemic that surrounds the notion that people distance themselves from other people? We are currently experiencing a moment when people are not interested in being talked to, touched, or in the company of other people while in public. One can only wonder how long this will go on.

Failing to have human interaction is not a healthy thing. When you ignore your human need to be around other humans you will see a part of your soul slowly dying. It is completely unnatural to live without having human interaction with others.

Psychologically, it is impossible to feel grounded or stable when you live your life without any personal contact. There are many famous people who lived their lives without being around others. Henry Ford is one famous man who feared germs, and as a result, he spent most of his life living alone. When he came out of his house, he would wear gloves and he refused to touch anyone. In his mind, he thought that he would live longer if he could simply avoid contact with other humans. Unfortunately, his life did not extend as a result of his distancing himself.

When a person avoids human contact with others, they fail to see how they are limiting their own experiences and magic that occurs when you meet someone new. Socializing with others allows us the ability to connect with one another on a physical, mental, and spiritual level. Without such communication and connecting, there is no way that humanity can progress.

Take a moment to watch this video and then tell us what you think. Do you feel social distancing is necessary during these times?



When Social Distancing Goes Too Far

With the COVID-19 pandemic happening throughout the world, it’s no wonder that people are losing their minds and working their hardest to avoid catching the disease. The phrase ‘social distancing’ is even trending to reflect the level of fear that most people have at this moment. Here, we have a perfect example of one man who made sure he didn’t touch anyone–as well as making sure that they didn’t touch him!

In this video we have a guy who walked through the airport in Italy wearing a circle skirt. He apparently used a huge piece of cardboard to create a circle around himself. It looks like he’s sitting in the middle of one gigantic circle desk, to be honest. He made sure that everyone knew his intention on remaining free from any personal contact with others.


Leadership In Times Of Uncertainty

In this video, a news anchor discusses the importance of good leadership during this tense time throughout the world. Everyone seems to feel that they are losing their personal power, and this alone has the ability to lead to disruption and chaos. There are millions of people in the United States who are wishing and waiting on someone to step up and tell them what to do. They need someone to calm their nerves, tell them everything will be alright, and to provide them with accurate information so that they can make informed decisions. Without such leadership, we will see people fighting over toilet paper, water, and a million other things that should never warrant violence.
