Deeply Meaningless Thoughts…

Deeply Meaningless Thoughts…

I keep reading people making the case that they refuse to lose everything – meaning their small businesses, their jobs, money, and so on – because of Covid-19. And on the surface, it makes some sense. You worked hard for your job or to create your small business, and you need to feed, clothe and shelter your family. I get it.

But I’m sorry, loss of a business or a job pales in comparison to loss of a life. You can rebuild your business or start over. You can find another job. It will be hard, and in some cases, devastating financially. But death is permanent, and infinitely more harrowing.

We are all suffering some level of loss right now. So please, before you place yourself and others at risk, put your loss in context and ask yourself if what you’re going through is as bad as losing a loved one. If your answer is to prioritize something that can be replaced, you’re the problem.
