Get Over It!

Get Over It!

Author’s note: this article is not about politics and in no way reflects a political viewpoint.

There’s no lack of complaints when it comes to having to wear a mask in these times of covid.  No one really enjoys wearing a mask, even with all the cool looking ones being manufactured.

Do I believe the masks are a guarantee that one will not contract the virus?  No, of course not.  I have written extensively on my perspective of the virus. Do I believe the masks help?  The answer to that is irrelevant to this article.

For someone who doesn’t believe the virus will attack anyone who hasn’t on a deeper level invited it into their body and their life, one would think I would be avidly anti-mask.

I should be one of the loudest protestors.

But I have put the mask wearing into its proper perspective.

So, is wearing a mask a major inconvenience in my life?  No, of course not.  I wear one from my car to the grocery store, in the store, and back to the car.

I don’t have to wear one all day in a customer service or a medical related job.

And the ones who are complaining the loudest are the ones who, like me, wear them for only minutes while shopping.

And of course it’s not the inconvenience of the mask wearing as much as what it represents.  I notice those who cry the loudest seem to be associating the mandatory mask wearing with socialism.  The fear of the government controlling their body and their lives.

Some protesters are bearing signs that read, “My body, my choice. No masks.” Comparing government control of a woman’s reproductive rights to having to temporarily wear a mask is ludicrous.

I try to be patient with the complainers, but I’m tempted to remind them that growing up as a woman in a society that monitors and polices our bodies, behaviors and how we are supposed to dress, so we don’t appear too provocative to the opposite sex….well, I stop myself from going there with them.  It wouldn’t end well.

And I have to wonder, what is it in them that has become so triggered?  Have they been over-controlling of their own actions and thoughts on a more personal level?

When I get triggered by women’s issues, it often reflects my own mistrust of the feminine.  How often have I given into my mind’s control and fear over what my heart knows to be true?

And now that I think about it, both ends of the spectrum, those who protest the loudest against the non-mask wearers, and those who protest against wearing the masks, are both sides of the same coin.  Both sides are terrified of losing control in their life.

So, with all of the inconvenience of mask-wearing, at the end of the day, I have to say to those people who can’t stop grousing about the masks, and, yes, I know, it falls on deaf ears, but I’ll say it anyway….. “Get over it.
