In the text, “The Dilemma: Cut It Out” (Upfront) I learned that friends have become more overbearing with the pandemic. The anonymous author claimed that she started cutting her friends’ hair when the pandemic hit. Ever since one of her friends has said that she will no longer go to the hair salon ever again because her friend (the anonymous author) can do her hair instead. The author cannot find a way to tell her friend nicely that she will no longer be doing her hair because they’re all fully vaccinated.
I think that the pandemic has made people more dependent on others. We should all be considerate of other people’s times and realize that they have a life of their own and cannot be available for us at all times. I’ve noticed that this pandemic has brought people together (which is good). I also think that many of us have crossed others’ boundaries at least once.
Have you become more reliant on others since the pandemic started?
