When I started this blog, I had hoped on writing little bits on beauty, books, and life. I wanted to have my own corner of the internet that was just like me: observant, bright and full of life. Unfortunately life , or death rather, has decided to dim my light right now. Today makes a month since I lost my boyfriend. Grieving during quarantine is hard.
The timing is never right, but during this virus it sometimes feels like I live in a bubble. I had plans on how I would spend my birthday that was just last week; maybe watch some movies, have a quarantine party on Instagram live or just stop by his place and be together. It’s hard to be happy when your person dies.
I had attempted going back to work thinking maybe it would help me as a form of distraction; I was very wrong. I can’t be empathetic to anyone right now and that’s the basis of my job. So here I am: sad, stressed and trying to get through the grieving process. While grieving during quarantine is hard, I’ve found therapy useful. If you are looking for a therapist I suggest the site I used: Faithful Counseling.
I thought I could describe a state; make a map of sorrow. Sorrow, however, turns out to be not a state but a process. – C.S. Lewis
