The building that I was working in was probably 40 years old, hanging on by a thread and with duct tape and some superglue. A stiff wind would have blown it over, I’m sure my relationships were also hanging on by a thread by the end of the first year after covid started. I was working so much and just thought that my personal life would take care of itself. My personal life didn’t take care of itself.
My children are grown now, I was in a relationship for eight years, but it didn’t work out. When you’re a nurse you put your work before everything. I had to learn that no one will take care of your own happiness but you. I had to learn that the hard way. My breakup was hard and a huge life lesson. I mean I learned a lot from that year. What I will or will not put up with, who do I allow in my small circle. I’m happier now than I ever was before in my broken relationships, but it took a lot of growing and pain to get to where I am at present.
Just some thoughts: Ladies please take care of your happiness before anyone else’s. It wasn’t fun moving into a studio apartment by myself at my age and starting over again. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone to go through what I went through in 2021. It was worse than 2020.
On top of Covid, my breakup, I also lost my mom and we were not on speaking terms when she expired or passed away. Also because of Covid they were not having grave site services so she didn’t get that or I should say her kids didn’t get that closer either. She was cremated. It’s been a rough couple of years. Moral to this story DO YOUR SELF-CARE FIRST, then take care of the world. Y’all will be much happier because of your own self care. Stop caring for everyone else first, be selfish, and take care of your own needs, then if you have time take on the world. Believe me, it will be worth it in the end. Have a blessed one.
