I wear a mask when I leave my house to go for a walk, to the supermarket or to the pharmacy, to go to the doctor or to do some important errand. I even use it to receive home deliveries.
I stay two meters away from you, I stay at home in social isolation, as much as I can. I want you to know that I respect you, because I could be asymptomatic and infect you with the virus. No, I don't "live in fear" of the virus, I just want to be part of the solution and not part of the problem.
I don't feel like the "government controls me", I feel like an adult who contributes to society.
The world does not revolve around me, if we could all count on each other's consideration, the whole world would be a better place.
Wearing a mask, staying home as long as I can, keeping a distance of 2 meters from others does not make me a weak, scared, dumb or "controlled" person; makes me a caring and respectful person.
