Numbing out

I feel heartbroken even if my heart has not been broken – at least not these days. I had a fall out with a close member of my family. And I’ve tried to numb myself from feeling bad by binge-watching Vampire Diaries on Netflix. I deliberately took a temporary break from my life, doing just the minimum necessary work to keep things afloat.
I think it’s quite a good method of numbing yourself when you feel bad.
Now, of course, you can’t stay in that mode for too long, but it felt comforting to be able to do that and to give myself this break, knowing it’s only temporary, and that I will get back to my life and when I will, the pain will be less painful.

      That’s a good idea, thank you for the tip. I’d have to be careful to not extend the break too much, though. I might be tempted to forget about going back to work that day 😀
