Not having internet is a privilege. I couldn't support my family without internet. Getting "out" requires resources as well including transportation and the ability to get to a place where you use internet. Stop pushing your privilege on others.

What would you say about someone who brings out the worst in you? You’re talking about it’s still a version of ourselves which of course is true but how would you overcome that or make a situation better with someone you have to be around but it just makes you feel negative & brings out the worst traits in yourself?

It's fine to philosophize, but this feels a little insensitive given the real need and fear that people have faced in the last two years. It makes you sound detached from the real suffering around you. People really do need food and housing. Fear really does point to the reality of suffering and instability in the world.
