Retreat…Retreat…

Retreat…Retreat…Sometimes its the only thing to do…Regroup and let the time pass when you just don’t want to talk with anyone or see anyone…Its not that you don’t appreciate their efforts…Its just that you don’t have the energy…It’s ok to retreat…It’s ok to shut out the world for a while…When you are ready you will emerge and resume contact…

If they take umbridge that’s their issue not yours…You have enough to cope with…Let them pout and sulk and feel hard done by…They will get over themselves…And if they don’t then they aren’t worth having in your world…This is about you…No-one else…Just you its about how you feel and what you need to do to get through this…

When you need to shut down and recharge on a level that others may not understand then do so…No explanation is required other than this is what you need to do…Take care of self…This is your need no-one else’s…It is allowed to put yourself first…Hold no guilt about doing this…You will come out of this phase…It will pass…Do not fight it…Allow this to be…

Being solitary is often easier at these times than listening to the well meant platitudes of “get well soon”!!!! “If only” i want to shout at them!!!! The disappointment when people don’t get this is immeasurable but inevitable…So cry…scream…shout…or be silent…be whatever you need to be…Do what ever you need to do…It is your way of coping…It is your way of getting through this particular phase…And that.s ok…This is about you…Your journey…Your way… NL X 🙂

“Its ok to be in your own space…No explanations needed…No talking to try to get others to understand how you feel…You will emerge when you are ready” NL x
