Since the pandemic began I have been aware that the nature of my job puts me very close to people and that's exactly what we are trying to avoid. I feel strongly that I don't want to contribute to the spread of the Covid 19, knowingly or not. I do not wish to get it from anyone and the more people I see the higher my chances are of getting it, and I do not wish to share it with anyone. These possibilities are unthinkable to me. After all, I am not an essential worker. It's true that this change is counter-intuitive when it comes to my own finances but I am just not comfortable working same as usual. what I feel good about is staying home, ordering my groceries online and seeing as few people as humanly possible.
I have loved my job as a hair stylist. It has been a truly beautiful thing, to work with and to get to know so many amazing people. To make people happy with their own appearance. To watch as friendships form and continue every few weeks over the course of years. I have loved my job. I have loved being appreciated for who I am and what I do and I have loved the friendships. I truly hope that we can continue to be friends.
