Agreed, many people have worn masks for years and adjust to them just fine. I wear one because I want to protect others in the event that I am contagious and don’t know it yet. I got the vaccine to protect my own health and anyone I might come in contact with. If for nothing else I would gladly wear a mask just to make others around me feel comfortable even if I thought it didn’t do much.Again it's just a mask and if you are a physically fit person like you say then your sweating and shortness of breath will not hurt you. I get that too, and you get used to it, your body will do it's magic.
I'm not responding to anything else as I'm not going to convince you otherwise of what you believe. I'll do what I think is best for my kids and family based off of the "god" or greater being that I believe and the science that can be proven.
You do you, and I'll do me
And I agree that it is useless to try and convince folks that have not experienced the darker side of Covid up close that it is real and that we need to collectively stop fighting about masks and vaccines. People are indeed dying from Covid, some have long illness and permanent damage. The lucky ones get sick at home and fully recover, this time.
If large numbers of people continue to resist participating in the public effort to eradicate Covid it will continue to plague us all. It has already come back around a second time as a new variant. It is likely that it will continue to return in even more resistant forms. This cycle could go on for as long as large amounts of the population refuse to fight the disease.
We as a society have been through this before with polio, smallpox, measles etc. I am hopeful that the current anti maskers/vaxers will eventually join the fight against Covid for the sake of their fellow man. Covid is the enemy, not your neighbor.
In the case of war we sometimes have to give of ourselves as individuals to protect our national freedom and style of life that we all enjoy and that we want to leave to those that come after us.
