These basic rules are taught to every pilot in the course of their training. So if problems arise during a flight and the situation is uncertain, clear priorities are set: First, you have to fly the aircraft and keep it in the air. Then the pilot has to navigate and decide on the best flight direction. Only then does the communication with air traffic control / tower / passengers etc. take place.
The parallels to current life with lockdowns and completely changed framework conditions are certainly there. Here, too, the priority is to control the aircraft (or life) and to make the decision for the best direction - you are the responsible pilot of your life and decide how your life should look in the future. Communication with family / partner / company is important for feedback, further support and helps against loneliness.
