I am a middle aged woman (young at heart) live on my own, I broke up from my ex partner 3 years ago, I have no children. (Unfortunately I couldn’t have children)
I am feeling depressed, I have suffered from anxiety & depression for years. I always put on a brave face so nobody will see my sadness. I get so sick and tired of people who say ‘snap out of it’. ‘Cheer up’ a former friend used to say that to me a lot, she said I was feeling sorry for myself etc. I told her off!
I am very unselfish, I have always put other people first, family & friends. When I want time for myself I get told that I am selfish. That really irritates me.
one thing that I like about lockdown is that it’s a good excuse not to be sociable etc.
i love going out for coffee, dinner and the movies. I don’t go to pubs, clubs and bars, occasionally I will go to a club with friends to see a show, music or go out for lunch,
I don’t smoke, only drink socially, don’t gamble. I have been called boring which really hurt my feelings.
I have been hurt & betrayed by friends & relationships which made me develop trust issues.
thank you for reading this.
