An answer of “yes” to the latter question is not uncommon. What we think will make us happy is often off-base. It might sound like:
- I’ll be so happy when businesses re-open to full capacity.
- I’ll be so happy when we get a vaccine.
- I’ll be so happy when we can return to “normal.”
While these things are wonderful, and for many, a great relief, we commonly overestimate the impact they have on our happiness.
If you were somehow spared a personal loss or trauma during the pandemic, you are still part of the collective trauma. A perpetual fight or flight mode has an impact on our emotional, mental, and physical being. As a result, happiness can elude us.
