“I am worthless, that’s why they fired me” Words hardly making their way through the moist eyes and trembling fingers.
“No, that is not the case. You know it is because of the COVID” A comforting voice.
“I don’t know. I was never so unsure about my career. I am not ready to handle this crisis. I am so scared” A morale that is on the verge of breaking.
A momentary silence, before he confessed “You know what, we all are scared”, and the monologue continued.
“Yes, maybe you were not ready, but the entire world was not ready to fight a global pandemic. That doesn’t mean you haven’t done anything in life.
What about that UG/PG degree which you worked hard for?
And internship/ job that you excelled at?
Those countless courses/ certificates you gathered?
Sports you championed?
And the life you lived?

It is ok to be scared, but you survived a global pandemic, and that itself shows your tenacity.
Your dreams await you on the other side of the road.
And dear we are all in this together!”
