Stephen2020Vision: Hi how is everyone going? Things are going quite well with me at the moment.
I am still very concerned with the situation in Victoria, is everyone from there okay? I am still here if you want to chat.
Stephen2020Vision: I just had a quick announcement to make. I am aware of the political situation in Melbourne and Victoria, and how things have taken a bit of a dark turn over there.
So if any of my friends from VIC want someone to talk to, I will make time for you, just don't be afraid to reach out to me
Stephen2020Vision: I regret that I have to make this post, but I have prayed about it and seek guidance from my faith to choose the right words, that are both honest, but also gentle as I can be...please note this isn't directed at any individual as a lot of people have been behaving this way recently.
It's nothing personal, but I haven't been feeling 100% mentally already, and when this all damn virus thing began, it just seems that people have become more demanding for my attention to things but rarely in the way I want. I really don't need to be pressured into anything extra in my life right now.
Now I do agree that this certainly is a time when we should be supporting each other when we need it sure, but that doesn't mean we should smother each other, pressure each other, it's more the case well okay, will give each other helping hand when we can, simple as that.
Do forgive me if I go further into isolation until this whole corona thing hopefully blows over, as I have been quite used to being alone for the past year, and now all of a sudden people are smothering me, demanding things all at once, don't get me wrong I can be a pretty social person that does like the odd phone call from people once or twice a week, but if you do want to call, please don't come to me with what you think I should and shouldn't be doing it really isn't the way friends should be treating each other, I mean be there to listen to one another sure, and I am MORE than happy for friends to talk to me and just listen to them...
My guess is that a lot of people aren't used to the same level of social isolation/distancing that I've lived for the past year anyway, maybe that is a part of it, but this has been my life, where I'm more or less alone, no pressure to do anything beyond the basics of what you need to do to survive, I'm not saying I don't want to talk to people, but if people do want to talk, just please keep it chill...keep it casual...that's all I ask.
Luckily my local church is still open and will definitely be praying about this issue on Sunday, as it's my wish that in being honest about this, I don't cause any unnecessary offence, I don't want to have to delete wire unless I absolutely have to at this point.
But for what it's worth I do hope some of us talk again soon under better circumstances in the world.
