  1. So sorry to hear about the loss of your father’s friend. I haven’t lost anyone really close to me during Covid. Our next door neighbor passed (a guy we didn’t know that well), but I feel so badly for his girlfriend and son. We live in California. The guy and his girlfriend had plans to move to West Virginia, (I think they were just looking for a change in scenery) and she is left to pick up the pieces. They made the decision not to get vaccinated, but I still feel feel empathy for her. It’s a sad situation all around because the guy’s son had already been in and out of jail before Covid, and we never see him around anymore.

    It sounds like you’re working through your own situation. Breakups suck—there’s no two ways about it, but I think writing about it is one of the healthiest and best ways to heal.

    1. Ugh your poor neighbor, I agree, it’s just a sad thing all around. Yeah it really makes me wish that everyone would just get vaxed, since it’s crazy, people really are still dying every day from this. But I also understand it’s everyone’s choice. The poor woman, and her son. Thank u also for your kind words about the breakup. It seriously always helps to hear that others have been through it. It gives me hope and makes me feel less alone, so thank u, and thanks so much for reading!!

  2. I love Stoic philosophy on life in general. That’s great you found inspiration in that. It takes time to be able to integrate new approaches in your life, but it’s great to see you’re doing that

    1. Yeah it must be done in order for me to move on and be happy! I know nothing about stoic philosophy and am definitely thrown off by that word. But I’m so glad you found this interesting and thanks for reading ☺️🙏🌸

    2. One of my favorite Socrates quotes is “Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” Yes, it takes focus and effort to break away from the hurly-burly of every day life, and easy to get caught up in the routine…
