Why people in Kyiv hang out while the war?
I have heard and read a lot of criticism and doubts like “Ukrainians are hanging out while there is war in their country.
Is the war there?
They spend our money.”
It is a very superficial conclusion. Very.
Short answer: if there is no tomorrow for us?
- We see death every day
Especially when we were so close to death, when we see death literally every day and read about it, we have a stronger desire TO LIVE.
To LIVE despite everything, because if there is no tomorrow for us?
But there are many who don’t want to live now being alive. I know what it is.
Each Ukrainian was touched by the war: fleeing out of the country and staying 5 days near the border with children, or their city being bombed at least once, or being in occupation, or their relatives being under occupation, or their father/mother, husband/wife, son/daughter being defenders, or their home being destroyed, or a family member being killed.
There is no way to escape the war in your country.
There is Metaverse.
The online war is everywhere.
Ukrainians can be in a safe place, but they wake up with news about the killed 30 Ukrainians in the humanitarian corridor in #Zaporizhia after falling asleep with news about the illegal #annexation of their home.
Read about each killed person, prisons for torturing.
2. There is a war in Kyiv.
The war is here. During weekends, there are heroes’ farewells, people are mourning and saying goodbye to fallen heroes.
The air strike alarms are literally 3 times per every day. Lots of people are volunteering, collecting money, humanitarian aid, and equipment for the frontline.
The illusion of a peaceful life fools people who come for a short time. Vast majority of Ukrainians donate regularly.
3.To stay strong, we need to rest.
What is wellbeing at war?
Our mentality cannot bear that 24/7, we need to rest.
Moreover, especially when the body experiences a high level of stress which is abnormal for humans, people need to recover and have an emotional release. We are all different.
People have three reactions to fear: fight, flight, or freeze. We work like a team, when someone is tired with no energy, they go to rest and others come to replace them.
