This post is quite personal and I hope that being open and honest with you will help you feel less alone. Being the single friend can be really tough, so here are the main things that I have learned these past years to make it a little easier.
Sometimes life can be a lot. And when that happens, you can feel overwhelmed and any small thing that wouldn't normally be an issue seems like the biggest problem humanity has ever faced. When that happens, it's usually a sign that you need to take a break. So listen to your body and if you feel like you need a break, take some time for yourself. Whether it's just for an hour or an entire weekend, your body and mind will thank you. So here's a few tips I have when you need a break from things.
We all have times where we feel lonely. Some days, weeks, months are worse than others, and it can take time and effort to not feel so anymore. That was me about a year ago. I felt terrible, alone and like there was nothing I could do. However, there’s so many things that you can do to feel better and focus on the things you have. It took me a few months and I’m still figuring things out, but I’m hoping that if you’re in a tough place and feel very alone, these tips can help you the way they helped me.
As I'm writing this, I have gone through more packs of tissues than I can count and have overall just been feeling very shit. So in light of the situation, I thought I could share with you some things that you can - and should - do when you are ill. This post is not going to be very long unfortunately, but if you do happen to be sick in the future and are looking for some tips, I'm sure you'll be grateful it isn't!
