When we talk about 2020 as the worst year ever, we mean many entangled things: A pandemic, the deaths and economic destruction caused by the pandemic. The governmental mismanagement of the pandemic. The ways the pandemic has exposed the failures of our social system. The ways it has divorced us from routines we rely on and people we love and most importantly *our delusion that the future is in our control*.
In this very year 2020, we have witnessed *forest fires*, *floods*, *wars*, *Governments being toppled over*, *political unrests* and what not. Most importantly, this year has taught us Humans that we do not run this Earth. We, the Humans who are delusional about the fact that we can control the future, have been slapped on the face with the bitter truth.
God and Nature have clearly made evident who runs the show. We should be very very careful and be vary of the repercussions while we attempt to fiddle with Nature and try to take matters in our own hands.
We must not forget the fact that we were created to sustain and coexist peacefully with nature and not abuse it. We are there because of the Nature and not vice-versa. This worst year ever has been far worse for some than others, but it has touched us all.
Our loss, grief and anger is collective. It is far more deepened and aggravated by the constant media invasion telling us what an awful year it is. But for most people there's more than one kind of "worst" year.
There's this public collective losses, and there's the private kind also. This year the public and private may overlap — the death of a loved one, the loss of jobs, financial and social constraints. Eventually, it might just help to remember that 2020 isn't over yet and there are few more days until December.
Who knows? The worst year ever could turn into something far better. Lets hope for the best, lets keep spreading positivity, let us there be for and with each other during these tough times.
MEANWHILE, LET US ALL JUST STAY HUMBLE AND REALISE THAT OUR ROLE IS TO SUSTAIN AND PRESERVE RATHER THAN AIMING FOR SUPREMACY.
