Self care for Demisexuals

Self Care Activities you can Enjoy Alone

Let’s make the best of this lock down. Take advantage of the time we have and partake in some confidence boosting self care activities we can enjoy alone. Being comfortable with ourselves is something we’re going to take with us long after this lock down ends.

If this lock down has shown me anything it’s how much we, as a society, struggle with being alone. Speaking for myself, alone time has always been something I treasured.

Pre-lock down there were few things I enjoyed more than spending a weekend in my pajamas not talking to a single person. However, having spent the past several weeks alone, I’ve realized that balance is key. By the time Friday rolled around, I was tired of people because my day job requires interacting with others for 8 hours a day. That has changed now, and it’s a challenge.

With all of that said, this lock down is a great opportunity to recharge our batteries and to get to know ourselves a little bit better. It’s a chance to check in with ourselves, to make the changes we’ve been putting off and to be the people we really want to be.

Spending time alone is the perfect way to really get to know ourselves. It’s a chance to listen to our, often ignored, inner voice and develop a relationship with ourselves.  Choosing to be alone is one thing, however, being thrown into it by outside forces such as a divorce, a death, a move or change in friendships, or a lock down can be difficult to get used to.

Self Care for Demisexuals

Self care is important for everyone, especially demisexuals. It’s what will give us the strength that we need to continue being true to ourselves even when it seems the rest of the world thinks we’re wrong.

This is also what will help us develop the confidence to set and enforce the boundaries we require in our romantic and platonic relationships. Self care will let us deal with the hard times that come up in our dating adventures. It is also what will help us in asking for what we need in a relationship and building the emotional intimacy we require to have a healthy, loving relationship on our terms.
