You are welcome to feel that hug every time you need it. Headphones and music is the best you can do in your living circumstances. Good thing that schools are still open and I hope they remain open.

Thank you for the validation.
It’s been two weeks since our schools closed again. Everything shut down once again; and with sudden alarm. My head has been a big mess. I haven’t been able to gather up or organize my thoughts on a single thing that’s going on in there. Anita, I’m having a hard time. I’m sorry I had to tell this to someone. I just wanted someone to know.
I am hoping things are better where you are. I am hoping you’re well

No need to apologize for posting on your thread about having a hard time: I want you to post about hard times (and better times), if it makes you feel a bit better.
I understand your distress about schools being closed- that’s how you got to have a break from being at home/ being around your mother. I am sorry you no longer have this opportunity, and hope that schools will open safely soon!
Here in the U.S, there were almost a quarter of a million of new infections yesterday, and in the last three days there were more than 3 thousand new deaths every day- scary. Where I live- indoor dining is shut down, but outdoors dining/ socializing is happening and it is a great relief for me.
I will soon be away from the computer for a few hours, please feel free to post anytime, at any length and express yourself fully. I will check your thread when I am back.

That is a pretty alarming news, I hope you and other citizens are coping well.
Thank you for understanding. I really don’t get the hold of my thoughts when I’m at home. Even when nothing particularly bad is happening, I just seem to lose all my motivation, discipline and energy. I am not myself right now. And this lifeless me needs to get done with really important stuff like Scholarship Award Applications, studying for A-levels exams and such.
I am guessing I’ll have to find a way or excuse to stay out somewhere to do my tasks. I really want to run away from this stillness, it’s eating me away. What do you do when you feel stuck in life?

I am coping best I can, thank you. And you are welcome. I understand you losing all your motivation, discipline and energy when you are home- that’s how I felt when I was home, with my mother. I too felt lifeless, wanting to run away from the stillness/ lifelessness- run toward life.
“What do you do when you feel stuck in life?”- when I was stuck with my mother I used to day dream a lot, fantasize about live elsewhere, far away. Otherwise, I tried to focus on my studies and not pay attention to her, but that was hard to do (to not notice her).

Since it’s past New Year’s already; I wish you all the belated sincere greetings. I hope you still are coping the best.
I am happy to write that I am, too, coping the best right now.
It put a smile on my face today, when I discovered that you were thinking of me on an important holiday. Although I don’t celebrate Christmas, it was nice to receive a holiday greeting as a warm gesture. So that’s how you go on the list of ‘one of the first things that made me genuinely smile this year’! And in return, I wish that if such list exists for you(on a paper or as a mental note), you get to fill it with nice and interesting things.
I truly appreciate all your replies and your presence on this forum. Stay healthy!

Thank you! Good to read that you are coping the best right now, and it feels good to be on your list of one of the first things that made you genuinely smile this year!
You are on my list of things that make me smile as well, and I am smiling right now!

As always: delighted to read your response. I am so glad to know that I made it on your list too!
