“In this current situation, earning a living is difficult. People’s hands are tied. That is why the domestic and psychological issues have increased. I think they are two main aspects of life that people always struggle with. And now this virus has taken over, it’s true that it is indeed a disaster for humanity, but we each owe a death. That is why I don’t think we should look at it with so much fear. I assure you, the amount of people who struggle with pain and misery, strokes, cancer, and many other things that are not even mentioned are much more. That is just how life is. We need to protect ourselves and keep clean, but we do not need to be scared.
I have a 4-year-old darling. Two months ago, she caught a flu and it really distressed her. She had to receive oxygen for two days and two nights at the hospital. It was so troubling that we thought we would lose her. But thank God, she recovered with a good health. This one is very spoiled compared to our four other children. But this one has certain behaviors and says things that don’t fit her age. She does this wonderful thing; her mother spends time with her and takes care of her much more than I do, but once she sees me, she forgets her mother.”
