One year later, being on my own, and being okay at home for months

Yesterday was exactly a year when my ex called it quits with me. I was aware of this date towards the end of a long workday.

During our text chat in April, he didn't once ask me how I was doing. Rather, he said that he missed me and wanted everything we once had, minus travelling together. It was odd. It was all he wanted. So typical.

I am better off being on my own right now. I don't have any inclination to meet someone special, especially when we are all self-isolating at home.

My manager asked our team whether we wanted to go back to the office during the first phase of this so-called plan. I let him know that I need to know what safety precautions will be in place at our office before I can make an informative decision on whether I want to return. It seemed to be a premature question, especially when we are all working from home till mid-June right now. This date continues to get extended.

I don't mind working from and being at home. I'm a homebody who likes to see the world now and again. Going out a couple of times a week is a good balance.


  1. Yes, you are better am I. I didn’t realize May was the one year mark for both of us. 💕

    1. It's great to hear from you, Jay! I just realized that I haven't changed your blog URL on my blogroll. I hope that you're doing well!

      Thanks for your support. I agree that we are both better off these days. Some days are tougher than others. I still surprise myself at how strong I am, even though I don't feel like it sometimes.

    2. I wrote about the one year mark as well a few weeks ago. Mine was on the night of May 7th. It’s been a long road and still a ways to go, but...I’m hoping with some new experiences and memories, things will start feeling different.

    3. I feel the same way. Even after a year, I know that I've made some progress, but it's tough. I have great days and not-so-smooth ones. New experiences and new hobbies have helped.

      I'll be catching up with your blog now that I have fixed the URL to it. Thanks for dropping by and sharing how you're doing. I appreciate your sharing how you are doing.
