Separation due to Covid
Its been a tough year for most people. As an ex serviceman I bet you're proud as punch of your son.
I'd ask him if you can ring him over Xmas more often than normal. I'd also express ways to show your live to him in unique ways like poetry or letters. Some patents make scrap books etc.
We are here over Xmas. Keep talking.
I'm really sorry to hear that this has happened. I agree with TonyWK though, I bet you are so proud of your son.
Would you be able to video call him? Perhaps seeing his face might make you feel a bit better?
We are here for you, especially during this challenging time
That sounds so lovely! I think it's great that you were able to do things that made you happy and that you enjoyed your day. It can be tough during Christmas, there is almost the expectation that you have to be very animated but honestly everyone feels and celebrates differently!
I'm so glad you are managing your low mood better, what have you been doing? 🙂
That's really great that you have been keeping active and going to the gym and going for runs! That's absolutely fantastic. Especially considering when we are feeling low it can be so hard to get motivated but after exercising I feel better. I love those endorphins!
How was the FaceTime with your son? I know that it has been challenging but I think it's really great that you are doing everything you can to try to make the situation easier for yourself. The quote I like to think to myself is 'This too shall pass', it gives me comfort knowing that with each step I take it takes me to the end of the challenging situation and I can move on from it! I hope that makes sense.
No problem! I am definitely here for you 🙂
