A lot has been written about (and lived through) about how difficult the pandemic has been for everybody, but as you've read in many a greeting card at Walgreens, "every cloud has a silver lining."
In a thread on Reddit, people shared their "coronavirus accidentally led to something really positive" stories.
1. "Lost my job right as covid kicked off. I worked building fences during the summer and then for the census. A teacher friend told me that his school district was desperate for substitute teachers for the 2020-2021 school year. I applied and was hired immediately. I discovered that I love teaching elementary and special education and I’m really good at it. I will be returning to school in the fall to get my teacher certification."
2. "My federal student loans got deferred and we saved up enough of a down payment to buy our dream house."
3. "I had a really bad relationship with my in laws. During COVID, we all saw each other regularly because we had to since my mother in law wasn’t well at the time and we needed to look after her.
We made sure to quarantine ourselves from others, but we still spent a lot of time at her house because honestly, she needed help doing day to day things. Because we were forced to be in the same house for hours on end and be away from other people, I really grew closer to them and all of our previous issues just vanished. It’s great."
