Friendship Fix

“This pandemic also gives a message for us to treasure every moment with our family, friends, and loved ones. To treasure life, and to take care of ourselves and the people around us.”

I am from Laguna and I work in a Healthcare company in Manila.

When they announced the lockdown, I was at our clinic. My manager asked if there’s any way I can stay in Manila, instead of travelling back and forth. There is also the risk that I might be asymptomatic because we interact with hundreds of patients.

My bestfriend, who lives near my workplace, asked me to just stay with her during the lockdown period. She was really worried about my health.

During that time, there was a ‘gap’ in our friendship. We were hoping to fix it during the Aurora 2020, a hot air festival in Clark, Pampanga. Unfortunately, the event got cancelled.

Now, we’re watching Ben&Ben’s Puhon Facebook Live concert together. We are laughing and singing our hearts out!

This pandemic also gives a message for us to treasure every moment with our family, friends, and loved ones. To treasure life, and to take care of ourselves and the people around us.

This pandemic could bring family closer, and amend friendships. This brought me hope and strength. This brought me home.
