ecoTrain Question Of The Week #11 Are You A 'Hugger Or A Shrugger' In These Pandemic Times?

in hive-123046 •  7 days ago  (edited)


We haven't talked about the dreaded virus for a long time now.. Its been nice.. I’m in Portugal and here things are quite relaxed.. the main rule seems to be to wear a mask in shops.. And no huge parties.. but small ones are OK.. Its still quite strange in a way, but it's quite OK really, and most of my friends hug each other when we meet without thinking about it. The other day I bumped into a Brazilian couple.., i say bumped, they kept their distance and had very large and impressive looking masks on. All i could see was their eyes, and they looked very scared and afraid... poor couple! God only knows what brought them here, or what information they have to base their feelings on. Sometimes knowing nothing is bliss, and sometimes it leaves you in fear. The truth can be empowering, and i think that those that hug have chosen to make up their own story, rather than just listen to popular common opinion.

So this week we ask YOU.... Are you a hugger or a shrugger? I would like to know the general mood amongst my friends here on Hive.. Please note this is not a debate, and there is no judgement on whatever path you choose. All we want to know is what path you follow and why! I think it's a great opportunity to see what others do, because it can be very interesting for many of us, and perhaps surprising.. who knows!?

Please do also feel free to share about any other aspect of this pandemic and how has it affected your country or yourself? What is the situation and feeling like where you live? Do you live in the city or in a rural area? What do you think will happen over the next 12 months? Do you think the economy will be fine and recover because the government will do whatever it takes to ensure it? Are you making any new decisions to help protect you in the future?

Whatever you want to share, we want to hear about it! I look forward to reading your posts.. and will do my best to keep up! I have been really preoccupied this past 10 days pounding tyres with dirt in the hot beating sun.. Its amazing work, i love it, but it has left me little time or energy to post or comment or read much.. I hope to be finished this intense part within a week! <3

"Don't Stand So Close to Me" - ecoTrain Question Of The Week #11 Are You A 'Hugger or A Shrugger'

Here you go!

Been a while since I've done any kind of challenge! Now it's your turn to do a @naturalmedicine one :P

Really enjoyed writing this. Hopefully now I'm home and more settled I'll have time to contemplate these questions. Now on to the Abundance Tribe and Natural Mediicne one - phew!!! Hugs to you.

Here I got some freedom to speak loud, without a mask ...but I'm a shy guy.
Anyway, thanks for this opportunity for blurting out! 😷

Whether you hug someone or shrug away, do you feel freedom of expressing yourself in these times?

I don't think it could have been a better question for my first qotw post in some time...
So here it is:
