The current pandemic may bring about similar feelings of fear and despair. You may be thinking, How long will we have to endure these high levels of panic and uncertainty? What does our future hold? Will life ever be the same? How will we come out of the storm? Will we be worse off than we were at the start? Will we be beaten and battered?
