Am I essential?

I am sitting at home, essentially we get to choose our prison for the next month or months. After pondering things I have realized my life work is not essential. I am non-essential. My life will wither away into an abyss of nothingness.

I finally realize how insignificant I am.

Hi @AristotleOfGreece, these times are tough for sure. I hear you and wanted to let you know that a lot of people feel the same way you do. You aren't alone and these feelings are completely normal. Each day brings a new wave of emotions. It's definitely not easy. I'm just trying to take it one day at a time, and I'm realizing that some days are better than others. The online community is here for you. Hope you're staying safe and healthy.
