Mind but I felt better, I'm trusting myself and warming to the idea that although I thought I had changed there is a still w lot for me to address and this is the perfect time to
Great idea, Esme!! Puzzles -crosswords etc. You can buy a book in the newsagents or you can find some online. Board games, card games, a walk in your local area or a park, watch some of your favourite movies again, follow an exercise video on YouTube
for example Yoga with Adrienne or other different workouts, guided meditation on YouTube before bed to help you get to sleep. Listen to the radio or your favourite songs or make a playlist and sing along or have a dance 😊 Try some new recipes to
cook, do some arts and crafts like knitting or stitching or painting or drawing, write in your journal, phone or video call with friends or family to keep the connection alive. Read a book or articles online on a topic that interests you (separate to
Coronavirus to your sanity's sake . . . So that's all of my ideas! Sorry for blabbering on! Once I got started, I just kept thinking of other ones! And I think it's very healthy for people to focus on positive activities to occupy their mind at this
well i cook, even long recipes i did not have the time to try. then i read more. and i also did some 'netflix party' (a chrome extension that synchronize views and let you chat with friends on the screen).
Corrado, that Netflix view sounds great!! I would like to use that with my boyfriend! Thanks for the tip!! 😁👍🏾
Other indoor games like table tennis and pool if possible. Outdoor games that involve non-contact sports like tennis which allow for social distancing. 👍🏾
Him wanting to be friends. We hardly talk and when we do it's because I initiate conversations-it really upsets me and confuses me. I do have a message to explain how I feel about it but I hate how yet again I'm the one who was broken up with and yet
I'm the one trying to sort everything out between us- he may not be meaning to come across this way and that's why I want to send a message (face to face isn't really an option with corona) anyway I'm tired and I just want clarity, I don't want this
On my mind throughout isolation. However we've only just begun and I feel that I should give us both some time and space to settle back home and into this new 'normal', that will also give me two weeks in which we haven't talked as I don't want to be
The one constantly initiating- and again it will show that it's not in my head. I want answers and I'm prepared that it may make me upset I just need to respect myself more. Is this a good idea????
Sometimes, even though it's difficult, time after a break up is the best thing, to avoid that confusion and to avoid falling back into the roles you used to have/habits of romantic relationship.
Then after that time can you text or email sporadically to send greetings at special holidays or wish them a happy birthday etc. . . That's what's worked for me in the past anyways. X
Yes very true KT, I'm very much adapting to that and am fine to not talk for a while- it's just got me a bit down a we have the same friendship group and he really wanted to be friends and then has closed off, despite wanting to talk before and I had
To ask for a break. I think I just want a bit of clarity and honesty from him like I have been honest in the past if I need a break from talking. But I definitely agree a break is good for both of us
Thank you Shelly and Corrado!
Yes, you don't have closure. Maybe try and initiate one last conversation and explain its for closure's sake and because things are awkward when you have mutual friends. If he does not respond/avoids it, then I think you need to make the decision not
Because he said he wanted to be friends but has gone completely silent- we have like a 5 min convo each week and I'm the one to initiate. I'm tired of the situation and need to respect myself. I aim to focus on me for two weeks and if nothing changes
With F putting in more effort, then he cannot have his cake and eat it, I will text him how I'm finding it unfair and use this lockdown to sort out and prioritise myself
