Life Mental Health

Reminder: Check On Your Friends

I don’t really know the situation of COVID-19 and quarantine in other countries, but since almost all of us are now under quarantine, I’m posting this as a reminder to check on your friends, family and anyone you can think of. Everyone is having a hard time to cope with the whole situation going on, so please be reminded to keep in touch with your friends.

I’ve been staying inside our house for like 20 days now. Honestly, I haven’t really seen the outside world because we cannot go outside. I only see the trees when I peek out from our windows. And no, I’m not actually complaining of staying at home because this is the least I can do to help in the situation, but there are times for sure, it drives me crazy. My mom is feeling the same way, too. We miss being outside so much and I think we all do. We miss doing the normal things that we do, having lunch outside, meeting with friends and everything. We may miss these so much but let us value our own lives and others’ lives by staying home.

And thus, let us check on our friends who suffer from anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. They might be experiencing some kind of trauma going through all these and this is literally a super hard time for them. It is so hard for them too to distract themselves right now because of isolation so please make sure that you talk to them. Also, if you have a friend, family or loved one who’s home alone during this time, make sure you go talk to them, too. Introvert or extrovert, it doesn’t matter. Just make sure you check up on them. Remember that our mental health is just as important as our physical health so be sure to check up on yourself, too! 💕

If you’re shy to be the first one to greet and/or message them, and if you don’t know any topics to talk about, you can always send them gifs, animations and cute photos that would make their day brighter. But honestly, the most important thing is that they are reminded that they are not alone and we will all get through this together.

And if you’re the one experiencing all these, please know that we are here for you! You can always talk to us through the comments, email or DMs. The blogosphere is really full of nice and supportive people. You are not alone. ❤️

  2. Ahhh I loved this post! It’s so important to check up on your friends, especially in times like these! We’re under quarantine but we live in the country so we can still go outside to exercise…I’m sorry you can’t go outside! Lovely post❤️

    1. Thank you so much for your comment, Jasmin, I appreciate it! 💕 Oh that’s good to hear! It’s okay though, I’m kind of getting used to it already. 😅 Thanks again! Stay safe! ❤️

  3. Jirah??? You’re back?!!! How did I miss this!! I’ve missed you so much love❤️❤️ I hope you’re doing ok and finding creative ways to stay sane, haha, I’ve been lucky enough to live out in the country I can still step outside. Our town only has 5 positive cases though I’m sure there’s a lot more considering most people have very little symptoms or none at all. I was worried for a bit bc I found out I had been exposed to someone who tested positive before the lockdown but it’s been over 14 days and no symptoms so I’m in the clear! This is a lovely post that people need to hear, it’s so important to make sure people are staying safe and handling everything ok, and not panicking. If you go crazy and want to chat just shoot me a message on the gram❤️
