Hey, anyone else struggling to feel happy during lockdown? I don’t know how different it is in other countries but in England we’re still not allowed to see friends and family after over 2 months. Thing is I’m just feeling super lonely and finding myself feeling insecure and unloved even though people do care. I also feel like my boyfriend isn’t making much effort now but that’s just because I really miss him and wish he showed me that he misses me more. How has everyone else been coping? What have you been doing to feel better? Need some advice xx

i thought you were allowed to see someone as long as you maintained distance and were outside?

I have. I live alone and away from my family so it’s been hard. What really helped me was talking about it. I finally opened up to my mom about how I’ve been really feeling and she just listened to me. And I felt so much better after. I’m not saying the feeling goes away, but I think being open about it and communicating to people about how this is really impacting you can help. I’m sorry you’re going through this. But we’ll get through this. x

I’ve really missed my parents and sister during lockdown and missing out on a holiday added to this, however like @stinaaa I opened up (in this case to my SO) and we both spoke and listened and we felt so much better afterwards! We’ve been leaving the flat each day for walks around the town where we’re allowed and plan to give the car a clean tomorrow. By planning each day as best we can we find it easier and have less time to feel miserable. Being open and trying to plan I feel is important! Hopefully you find something to help you, and feel better :)

Getting out for a walk completely changes my mood. Talk to someone about how you’re feeling that can really help.

@stinaaa you’re completely right! Feel like I should talk about it more. I’ve been keeping it all in and it’s been making me feel so sick but we definitely will get through it xx

@ImTheOne I’ll definitely try to talk about it!! I think I’m mainly upset about not being able to see my boyfriend and just can’t understand why he’s not showing that he misses me. I need to talk to him about how I’m feeling ASAP but I’ve never been in this situation before so it’s just making me slightly anxious and I keep making up stories in my head which upset me.

@aiimxo that’s true I went for a walk yesterday and it helped a lot but in the evening I can’t help but feel so down x

@minajxo my mum is worried as she has health conditions which puts her at risk so I’ve just stayed in and plus my boyfriend lives 3 hrs away now I’ve moved home from uni so it’s impossible to get to him.
