Brunei, finally, caught up with the rest of the world, and is in lockdown. Suddenly I find myself having to handle me, without the buffer of colleagues and routine work. I have to manage myself now. And this task is proving to be not that easy.
Come to think of it, I have been putting off having to face myself, so far. My insecurities, relationship with family and friends, what I like doing, and what I do not like doing, people I like and people I don’t like.
In many ways, Covid 19 has anchored us in reality. Suddenly, we know our priorities, what we truly need in life, and what we do not need. A life down to the basics, with no frills. Starkly visible, in high definition.
And I can’t complain about what I see.
