I can't say how this situation impacts others, but I can imagine somehow it’s not pleasing to all of us. Now everybody is in a hard and stressful situation and I am not going to find any reason or explanation how to be adequate and to have persistence while the end of this uncertain situation is not even known. But the fact that all of us can and should be balanced is clear. Why?
A few days ago I had a misunderstanding with my colleagues. I am sure that some of you had some unclear moments as well, which is mostly connected with this crisis. But instead of finding somebody as guilty, it would be better to focus on our steps, speech, behaviour. Because nobody is guaranteed and nobody knows what could happen in the next minute. Let me tell you about my example.
Our organisation is implementing ideas about solidarity through different youth exchanges, seminars. During my 6 months volunteering experience I learned and got to know the main ideas of solidarity. It's a feeling based on respect, mutual confidence, equality and communication. And I just caught up with the idea and found a meaning of solidarity and finally let these ideas impact me, and I happened to be in a stalemate. How?
These days I guess all have small conflicts in their organization's, with their colleagues.I am not going to find the answer why. It's not so hard. Because everybody has his/her own perspectives about this or that question and it's not an issue of yes or no. It's an issue of having an objective and constructive approach towards any kind of conflicts or issues. So it does not matter who and with whom the issues happen. The fact that I am involved in this community shows that even the small unclear moments can impact on my routine life. So probably you are also waking up in the morning and checking your phone where you found a message which is not pleasant for you. What can you do?
Should you need to block all of your accounts, start to find guilts, or try to analyse why, why and why. Or maybe you will lose your motivation to do something, especially in the situation when you have less motivation already. Whom can you explain your uncertain situation and tell that you feel bad because of this or that topic.
So at the same time, for example I could analyze that I am not the only one. Everybody has these feelings, everybody has less motivation because of a situation that caused many problems in their life. So who can understand if Not me. Whom can I accuse for my bad mood and state. Whom could I tell that my manager doesn't understand me, or I don’t understand him/her well. So If I start thinking about these questions I have to say goodbye to all my skills and knowledge that I got to know about solidarity, that I learned during the seminars and youth exchanges that were organized by the same organization. And what do you think is it worth to concentrate only on our own interests and principles while everybody's in this situation. Now more than ever it's essential to keep the solidarity. Otherwise you will not be able to be in solidarity just by yourself.
Share in below your personal examples that you crash in during these days. I guess it helps to be more objective and to be in solidarity.
