Imagination and Reality

Seneca writes, "There are more things … likely to frighten us than there are to crush us; we suffer more often in imagination than in reality."

This is quite true in the situation we are in.

All we can do is take our best precautions, wash our hands often, stay indoors and adhere strictly to social distancing measures that are imposed. And if after all this, reality still crushes us, then at least we did our best to prevent it.

But when I look around, there is more worry of what could be, resulting in a heightened sense of fear about what's to come and when things will go back to normal.

Maybe it's by the end of the month, maybe it's much longer. But all we can do is be prepared and only be crushed by reality than by imagination.
