I know this topic is heavily discussed across these forums, but I wanted to share my latest column with you in case you missed it.
Titled Please Stop Glorifying Being Homebound, I write about how I often receive comments from people who think hibernating in the winter months is “glamorous.” Cozy blankets, Netflix for days, staying in your pajamas all day— yeah, I can see how people might assume that.
But, in reality, being homebound can feel isolating and depressing. And I discuss all of that in my latest column.
I can totally relate. Every year I go a little stir crazy around this time. Even if I do get out I’m paranoid about all the germs. People do tend to have that ‘must be nice” mentality. When people find out I work from home I really get that reaction. Yes, I am fortunate I can work from home, but it presents its own challenges. This year I’m really trying to be happy with where I’m at, and not letting peoples opinions bother me.
Halsey, “starved” is the perfect word to describe how I feel right now! And DeAnn, I sometimes get those same reactions regarding working from home, so I feel ya. Definitely something I need to work on as well.
