Hello bambinos, how is it all going today?
Lets just jump straight in. Everything is a bit difficult right now. not being able to see friends and family, work being uncertain, is making the mind play against itself. I can only really speak for myself and what I’ve seen on social media, but I get the gist that ALOT of people are struggling.
These last two weeks have been particularly difficult because I don’t cope well in my own company, and not having anything to do, can drive your thought paths down the wrong way. (for context I live on my own.)
I overwhelmingly miss everyone so freaking much, and I have cried countless times, but today, I woke up with a full Tigger hop skip and a jump because i have got through another day.
There are going to be bad days and there are going to be good days, and its important that you take each day and the emotions it brings whole heartedly, the more you ignore the feelings the more they will overrun. More importantly the more you do not communicate to others the worse it will be. I’m quite a ” im sad someone help” kind of person and I know some people are more “im sad leave me alone” so I don’t understand it as much, but I know that communication is important and talking about this whole thing is even more important.
Surround yourself with what you love, whether that be Tik Tok for hours on end, baking, books, music, the outdoors (obvs the garden) and make the most of, because in a few months we won’t have time, we’ll be too busy celebrating love, friendship and alcohol.
I’m getting through this saga with regular phone calls to all my amazing friends, animal crossing, and making the most of our daily walks in the sunshine. Workouts keeping me on top of exercise, and having days where I actually make an effort with my outfit so I feel worth.
It’s very hard right now, but each day we get through is one step closer to the end of this whole thing and that cold refreshing pint.
Stay safe, don’t be stupid, keep 2 metres away, and remain strong. We’re all in this together.
Lots of love,
