It’s not easy I know, how have you overcome it?
Initially it was staying busy and being sociable with friends. I had fun for the first time in my life. Festivals, proper nights out, etc. Things I’d never done before. I had a few relationships. That’s all over now and I’m now in the proper aftermath of divorce. Feels like a return to reality. I’m now living alone in a different part of the uk, no friends locally and my health has deteriorated. So it’s not great but I think at heart I am a loner so I don’t mind the isolation too much. It’s taken a while for me to let go of the knee-jerk reaction that makes me seek company.It’s not easy I know, how have you overcome it?
You’ve got the basics, though: job, roof over your head, no drug or alcohol issues. That’s a basic platform from which to start rebuilding. Presumably living with your folks means you can save a bit of money?I don’t know what to do. I’m like a rabbit in the headlights is how I describe myself,”frozen” through fear, not knowing how to live, just not knowing, i hate this.
Sounds like you are doing everything right, though. Keep with the routine and it will get you through the most difficult periods.I go to the gym, joined the recently. Even when I’m there and my heart rate is over 180 on the excessive bike etc my mind still ruminates, I give up.
