COVID-19 SUCKS…COVID-19 SUCKS…COVID-19 SUCKS…COVID-19 SUCKS…COVID-19 SUCKS…COVID-19 SUCKS…
Just when you thought, you had life all figured out-BAM! Covid-19 rolls in. Bringing with it, the insecurities you overcame
after years of therapy; the loneliness you said good-bye to in college; and the intrusive thoughts, you learned to silence.
Within 3 weeks of social distancing you feel lost
in what you hope is not a new normal and succumb to the allure of avoidance.
The boundaries implemented with mom and dad derail; as they become your only
Your workout routine, and TGIF cocktail go into hibernation; obsoleting purpose and value from your vocabulary.
Devastation over having lost the gains made in establishing your independence; slithers its way into an already overwhelmed brain.
Remember…..You got this!
These feelings are real, this situation sucks; and there is nothing anyone can say to make it suck any less. There are however, tasks that alleviate some of the symptoms associated with these feelings.
First and Foremost, re-establish boundaries. It will help decrease feelings of inadequacy that seep in when noticing gains you lost.
