Easing of Restrictions

Freedom of movement is upon us here in Wales.

This is an exciting time for lots of people who have been unable to see loved ones since the middle of March. It’s also the first time we’ll be welcoming British tourists to our mountains and beaches. The economy will start showing signs of growth again and that’s a good thing on the whole.

For some people there is still not reprieve until August due to shielding and for those who are not entirely satisfied with how the restrictions are being lifted, and the behaviour of others, they will still limit who they see and how they see them.

Social distancing still exists and thats 2 metres in Wales, outdoors, unless you’re in an extended household bubble.

Today is not a full stop on the restrictions. It’s a comma, with a virus still writing its sentences for us all to see. Yes the numbers are incredibly low in Wales but people are still dying. After scenes of Soho over the weekend I wonder what the number of those affected will change to.
Why am I writing about this today?

Because we are all free to make our own choices. It is in our actions that we become who we are. However, our actions carry consequences and are either inline with the law or in contravention with the law. I don’t pass judgement on your actions and likewise I wouldn’t want others passing judgement on my actions.

We are all free to react and respond to these easing of restrictions in certain ways and we should be allowed to do these without feelings of shame or guilt attached to it. Those who are staying in or distant have their reasons and those reasons should be respected.

I’ll be talking about actions again, and how we can use them to overcome our minds negative biases. But for now, use your actions to show understanding and empathy with those around.
