As of today, almost everybody knows or have heard about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic. Besides being an infectious disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, it is included among the worst pandemic events of human history. The spreading speed has been exponentially fast, not to mention its frequent rate of mutations. But I’m not going to write about the virus perse, but about what I have been doing during those famous lockdown periods.
As we grow, we pass different phases through our lives. Some of these are more difficult than others. However, that's the way of life. It doesn't matter our social level, we always have happy, wonderful moments, as well as sad, uneasy, uncertain and/or disappointing ones.
The important thing is: How do we overcome those experiences that provoke failure, fault, sad, and anxiety feelings? It's not an easy thing, but it is possible to overcome any negative situation or emotion that we are going through. It depends on our "tools", our psychological mechanisms, our knowledge, our abilities and assets. Mind states that we choose to have. Yes, I mean choose, because everything we do in life depends on the decisions we make. We decide to laugh or cry, being happy or being sad, to success or fail, to lie or to tell the truth, to love or to hate. In short, you make your own decisions based on what you want for yourself.
