I despise change. Any change in my life no matter how big or small freaks me out and messes with my mind. It can be a change to my routine or week that can throw me out of my rhythm. I find holidays hard to deal with. Currently the rest of my family are on holiday abroad. I however find this just too hard and upsetting to manage so I am staying with my boyfriend and his lovely family. They live 30 minutes away from my family home and where I work which is ideal. It’s like having. Holiday away from home but the distance is just right. I’ve drawn up a timetable with my boyfriend who is very understanding and we have planned what we are doing for 10 days. We know when each other has to work and it’s a really visual way of keeping me calm. I ❤️ routine! I know most people would jump at the chance to go abroad with their family and I really miss the fact I won’t be in my family photos or holiday memories but I’m just happier near home.
How do you feel when you are away from home? Any good coping strategies you have?
