Love in the time of Corona Virus can be a tumultuous roller coaster ride. Being co-quarantined with your partner or staying apart from each other during the pandemic can be treated as a kind of compatibility test for a couple. While some are bound to pass this test with flying colours, others can be heading for Splitsville. In case, you fall in the latter category – that is, you have broken up with your bae during these trying times – here’s how you can pull yourself out of a world of pain:
Allow Yourself To Grieve
Okay, your worst fears have come true. And it’s bad timing, too. So, accept it and allow yourself to feel the full onslaught of pain and hurt. Cry your heart out – it’s okay to feel hurt and wronged.
After the initial shock and pain subside, try to put things in perspective. Maybe several issues had been festering within the relationship and a breakup had always been a distinct possibility. Maybe these difficult times have only served to highlight the deal breakers in your relationship. So, take the reasons in your stride and strive to move on.
The Job In Hand
No matter what other trials and tribulations you may be facing in other aspects of your life, you need to focus on tiding over the present Corona virus crisis first. Make every attempt to stay fit and follow all the safety protocols in place during the pandemic.
If you are working from home, focus completely on the tasks assigned to you. If you find the time, up-skill yourself – enroll in various online certificate courses relevant to your field. Use this time to reboot your career goals.
You can be feeling extremely lonely, especially if you are living away from near and dear ones. Stay connected with your family and friends at all costs. Go for video chats or just call them. Despite these, if you are being unable to extricate yourself from the clutches of negative feelings because of the breakup, seek professional help – there are helplines you can turn to.
