Earlier today I was thinking about the fear and anxiety people are beginning to have around social distancing and how actually, it isn’t too dissimilar to the feelings I had when I became an expat. I felt isolated, alone, unsure… I am not a licensed therapist, counselor, etc. but I can be a friend. A friend that understands the shitty emotions that social isolation can bring. Recently I have found that I have to repeatedly turn off my social media apps because I become exhausted by everyone feeling obligated to tell us what we should be saying, doing, feeling… I’m done with that. So if you are too, but could use a friend, feel free to comment, email, and (if you know me like that) maybe even video chat. Let’s stay happy, healthy, and connected.
