headspace | living alone

Well, if you’re not living in Malaysia you may not know that we have been under the movement control order for 23 days (omg 😂) now. And yes, it took me 23 days of living alone with minimal human contact to finally come and fill up this page hehe. And if you’re a long time reader of my headspace journey here, you may notice that I usually avoid writing when I’m not okay mentally. It’s more onto me wanting to avoid thinking, reflecting and processing things that happen in my life as I write.

It’s funny tho. Even though I know in my heart that once I process all that has happened, it would be better for me. Although I know that addressing a situation is healthy for me so I can move along with my life without lingering over it. I still refuse to do it. I still avoid processing these emotions and conflicts and life mishaps — acting as if they don’t exist. How ridiculous is that?! Well, on the bright side at least I am aware of this detrimental pattern of mine 😅 Well, writing always put me on a better mood so let’s hope that this is a good start.

Sigh. Hahahaha.

How are you guys doing so far? It’s an odd situation we live in right now, isn’t it? I am definitely not the one who would predict that I’ll be living in social isolation for a month (possibly another extra 2 weeks) at the start of the year. But oh well. That is life. And as how this website started years ago, it still carries a relevant message to current days — sometimes life takes unexpected turns, live it anyways. Of course, there are days when I wish situations are better. The one where I can go to uni to revise for my professional exam. The one where I don’t have to adapt to new online learning environment. The one where I’m not scared of catching a cold or sneeze/cough in public (whilst maintaining personal hygiene ofc). The one where I can go home to my parents and visit my family and hang out with my friends without any worry that I may get them gravely ill.

Butttt we just need to suck it up and make do with what we have. Stop whining. Stop complaining. These behaviours won’t make our situation better. Work on what we can control. When we experience low mood or anxiety, take it easy on ourselves. If your situation permits, take the day off from work and revision. Your mental health and sanity should be the priority in this uncertain time ♥️ With this post I’ll put pictures from when I made Dalgona coffee hahaha. I haven’t gone out in a while okay. I don’t have pretty scenery/cafe pictures 🙈 I have something up my sleeve for you guys tomorrow, see you!
