“The habit of despair is worse than despair itself.”

(Albert Camus – The Plague, 1947)

The central state of our life situation is uncertainty. Our past came to an end and we need to build a future by continuing the present from completely elsewhere, without strong points. The state of stress can only be tolerated for a short time, not for long silent months, especially when the supposed end of the crisis is constantly postponed. Taking advantage of this situation, the environment and relationships around us are getting restructured step by step. In the absence of transparency plus due to partial truths and half-words inequalities and contradictions have intensified resulting a wider divergence than before. We have lost control of our lives as if we were individuals with no unique needs. The former normality has changed against our will, all specificities have dripped from our lives, only the feeling of tension, confusion, anxiety and exhaustion remained.
