Lena Dunham Shares An Inspiring Post By Referring To Post-Covid Period

Actress, writer, and director Lena Dunham took to Instagram and spread words that the world needs to hear during the coronavirus pandemic. Dunham, who recently declared that she was tested positive for novel coronavirus, posted a black and photo of herself standing in front of her home, wearing just a hoodie, from week 4 of her quarantine.

The ‘Girls’ creator wrote that she was staying in isolation 24/7 not because she was COVID positive but because she didn’t feel useful or worth much. In spite of mental health issues, Dunham added:

“But I woke every morning to stand and face the city like the wobbly prow of a sad little ship. And I learned to trust time – 10 seconds turn to twenty turns to sixty and then you’ve been healing for a minute. Minutes become hours which becomes days. And suddenly you’ve wracked up enough time to feel like a version of yourself you have some love for.”

Then the ‘My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea’ actress told of the future good days:

“I reminded myself how many times I have doubted my body and how many times she has pulled through for me, like a shitty Honda on a road trip. And one day this hoodie gave way to a dress, and I made my way down the mountain to the home I know and love and I wrote and ate grapes and found myself bouncing to whatever filthy beat was on the radio.”

Dunham, who is the first woman to win the Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directing – Comedy Series, later clarified the photo and continued hilariously:

“That’s enough of a definition of healing for me. But I like this photo as a reminder of the impossible part right in the middle – the part that feels like fingering a cactus. If you’re in it, and I know it feels like a resting place and not limbo, you’re coming out. Don’t force your pants back on too soon because they’ll appear when it’s time.”

The 34-year-old concluded her words as follows:

“One day you’ll look around and you’ll be eating your own fruit of choice, shaking your head like a dog to a song you love and you’ll recognize yourself exquisitely. You won’t care about any bullsh** (who your hookup friend moved onto in the empty space, what your mom thinks of her bit** neighbor, infighting around COVID protection attitudes in your friend group.) Quite simply, the chance to be present for any of it, the gratitude of presence, all of it will bring you to your knees.”

Week 4 of my quarantine looked like this – sunshine bleaching the remaining illness from my bones. Sharp angles and a soft mind. Staying in isolation 24/7 (save for the coyotes) not because I was COVID positive but because I didn’t feel useful or worth much. But I woke every morning to stand and face the city like the wobbly prow of a sad little ship. And I learned to trust time – 10 seconds turn to twenty turn to sixty and then you’ve been healing for a minute. Minutes become hours which becomes days. And suddenly you’ve wracked up enough time to feel like a version of yourself you have some love for. I reminded myself how many times I have doubted my body and how many times she has pulled through for me, like a shitty Honda on a road trip.
