So everyone knows we are currently dealing with a pandemic for the history books. Far more advanced medicine today than the pandemic of 1918 Spanish Flu or the start of the Influenza originally from southeastern Kansas. Who knew? It was an interesting read from a doctor.
Anyway I am realizing with being told to stay home that for some people being alone isn’t anything they are used to. I often wonder why? I guess it’s something I am totally used to because I’ve never been married, I don’t have any kids, but I don’t have a significant other who would be willing to be stuck at home with me.
I guess I’m not as upset or hurt by being home as much as others are. I’ve read a few articles of “How to Guides” of how to survive this pandemic being single. They suggest get on Dating apps and get to know people there. FaceTime friends and family. Make a schedule to get yourself up and moving around in your home, and also take this time to get some sleep, rest, and take some walks outside.
Now I already talk to family, some friends, but I know I am definitely getting some rest (thank you health issues) but to be honest the sleep has been the best thing for me. I’m used to being alone, and living in my space alone. I’m not sure how I would do if I was stuck with someone who I was in a relationship with. The idea of that makes me absolutely nervous.
I guess we all see being single in different perspectives. It either works for you or it doesn’t and you have to constantly have someone in your life. Me, honestly I don’t mind being alone, but when this is all over I’m going to look forward to meeting people for sure. I’m looking forward to having parties with my friends and going out to enjoy life as much as I can.
What about you? Are you struggling with the whole stay at home? Being alone?
