My experience of lockdown has been of loneliness and hope. Focusing on loneliness, incidents like me having symptoms of the virus have made me vulnerable especially because I live on my own. However, hope has come in the forms of a telephone call, text message and many other forms of kindness. My thoughts and feelings during this experience were of fear and peace. I was fearful of going to lose my home, as I was not productive in taking the reins of sorting out my financial issues of my property, however, I was at peace, when my landlord helped me out. I am most looking forward to becoming free from loneliness and fear and having more hope and peace once this lockdown is over and I hope this is the case for everyone around me as well, as for what comes up must come down and we can all thrive again. The things that I am missing is a hug for the lack of physical contact, which is damaging to wellbeing. Furthermore, I am missing being at liberty, as being controlled generates fear. This quote carriers me forward regardless: ‘Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.’ – Albert Einstein.

Mae fy mhrofiad o’r cyfnod cloi wedi bod yn un o unigrwydd a gobaith. Gan ganolbwyntio ar unigrwydd, mae digwyddiadau fel fi’n cael symptomau o’r feirws wedi fy ngwneud i’n agored i niwed yn enwedig oherwydd fy mod yn byw ar fy mhen fy hun. Fodd bynnag, mae gobaith wedi dod ar ffurf galwad ffôn, neges destun a llawer o fathau eraill o garedigrwydd. Mae fy meddyliau a’m teimladau yn ystod y profiad hwn wedi cynnwys ofn a heddwch. Roeddwn yn ofni fy mod yn mynd i golli fy nghartref, gan nad oeddwn yn gynhyrchiol wrth gymryd yr awenau o ran datrys materion ariannol o ran fy eiddo, fodd bynnag, roeddwn yn hapus pan helpodd fy landlord fi i wneud hynny. Rwy’n edrych ymlaen yn fawr at beidio â bod yn unig ac ofnus a chael mwy o obaith a heddwch ar ôl i’r cyfnod cloi hwn ddod i ben ac rwy’n gobeithio y bydd hyn yn wir i bawb o’m hamgylch hefyd, o ran yr hyn y mae’n rhaid i ni ei wneud, a gall pob un ohonom ffynnu eto. Y pethau dwi’n eu colli yw cael cwtsh oherwydd y diffyg cyswllt corfforol, sy’n niweidiol i les. Ar ben hynny, rwy’n colli fy rhyddid, gan fod cael fy rheoli yn creu ofn. Ond mae’r dyfyniad hwn yn fy helpu: ‘Dysgwch o ddoe, gan fyw am heddiw a gobeithio am yfory.’ Albert Einstein.
