It’s hard to put my feelings into words, but has anyone else ever felt like they were stuck in a rut and don’t know how to get out? I’m not sure if it’s because I just came back from a two week honeymoon somewhere warm, but I’ve been feeling down ever since. I have had the last two days off and will be off until Saturday (12 hr shifts) and have been feeling extra lonely. I’ve had these feelings in the past where I have no motivation to leave the couch or do anything. I moved to a different state a few years ago when I was dating my husband, and I still have trouble with feelings of loneliness as it’s been hard to make friends here despite attempts to meet people. It’s also just soooo cold here, so I think the weather has got me down too since it’s not nice enough to spend time outside. I also don’t particularly like where we live. My husband’s whole family lives here though, so while I would love to move somewhere else it doesn’t seem fair to ask him to leave his family (mine is scattered everywhere). I have a bunch of ideas of how to cheer myself up ie get my nails done, go to the gym, make something good for dinner, etc but for whatever reason leaving the house just seems so difficult. I keep working on trying to build my own happiness here, but it’s been difficult, especially when I have 4 days off during the week that I usually have to fill by myself. I was wondering if anyone has advice and has been through something similar.
