DEW Magazine #40 Vitality Issue Spring 2021. It’s quite strange how all of us are human beings, but individually we all have different things that keep us alive. So now we’re asking you the dreaded common question of, what exactly makes you feel alive?
On the topic of feeling empty, it’s getting harder and harder to feel alive when we’re surrounded by sickness and loss, and it’s no surprise that the past months have taken quite the toll on everyone’s mental health. Each day feels like a repeat of the last and it feels like we’re reliving the same 24 hours over and over again. Life as we know it feels bleak. Parts of our lives are being stripped away from us and there’s not much we can do about it, leaving us to feel helpless and distraught. Which is why this issue we’re shining a light on vitality, to remind each and every one of us to probe into our minds and look into what it is that keeps us going. (Text Vanya Harapan)
