Some of our friends are organizing parties now that our city is allowing gatherings. We are politely refusing explaining that we want to continue to stay-home for a few more weeks (atleast) and are not yet comfortable enough to get back to socializing. In fact we plan to be as conservative as we've been all this while. We want to observe how the situation plays out - it's been only 3 weeks since slow re-opening has begun in our city. It's bothering me incessantly (day and night) that given all that we're hearing in the news - the best thing to do is stay home if we can possibly continue to do so - why some are choosing to go ahead with back-to-normal lives. Help me understand what motivates them, how you or they possibly are justifying the risks involved. what are you planning to do? Any activities you are going to resume?
