I don’t know about you, but I’m confused. I’m not sure whether or not I’m supposed to wear a mask or not, whether it’s actually safe to take it off or if wisdom suggests I keep wearing it a little while longer, if not forever. Like many of us today, wearing a mask has become a regular part of my attire and what once felt like such an abnormal and uncomfortable thing to do now feels normal and comfortable. I find myself wondering if I feel safe wandering this world without a mask. As I shared before, I have some medical issues that increase my vulnerability to catching things because the medication I take lowers my immune system. Part of me says I don’t need the mask-I am fully vaccinated and I have had Covid. There’s another part of me that says it seems foolish not to wear one right now, that it’s too early to go about my life unmasked. I like to imagine I’m not the only one who is dealing with this and that there are many others who are facing the same types of questions. I did we get here? How did our world flip upside down and inside out like this? I am confused, anxious, depressed, angry, hopeful and hurting. Are you? I’m not sure I want to be unmasked physically and also psychologically, which is what part of me thinks will happen if I’m not wearing my mask when I leave my house. I’m not sure I want others to see my mess or my chin hairs. There is a certain degree of vulnerability that comes with not wearing a mask, physical vulnerability and personal vulnerability and I’m not sure I’m ready for it. How about you?
