It's been 9 months since I've graduated high school, and I can't help but to still feel empty about the coronavirus taking away the ending to my senior year of high school. I don't feel a sense of closure. I'm sick of people saying BS quotes about how this will make me stronger, and I honestly feel like it didn't. It feels like it made me weaker. At first, when they announced senior prom and the ceremony being cancelled, I was more accepting to it, and I went along with the BS quotes about thinking positive. As time went on, I began to feel emptier and emptier, and now it's really hitting me to the point where I feel severely depressed and sad about it. It's reached a point where I avoid high school movies and tv shows too. Anything related to high school is now triggering for me. It hurts knowing that everyone who was prior to the class of 2020 had to have to full experience of closure, celebration, and wrapping things up, but we didn't. They were able to have that feeling of finality, they were able to have a blast at senior prom, they were able to say their final goodbyes and get hugs on the last day of school while getting their yearbooks signed. But we didn't, it was just ripped away from us, as if those 12 years of school were meaningless. I'm missing out on the prime of my life thanks to this virus, which is your high school/college years. College virtually is no fun and it feels sloppy and disorganized. This is supposed to be the time of my life where I get to have a blast and meet new people and go to parties, but the fucking virus took that away. And when things go back to normal, this time of my life will come likely have already came to a close, and I'll just be part of the boring adult world. Someone help me feel better about the situation.
