Covid upset our balance.
Preface: Prior to Covid, we had got engaged and had been living together since October. We were extremely happy. Since Covid, he's been down. Numb, he says. He says its not personal and I know its not, but he wants more space than we're used to. He says he doesn't feel genuine. I know he loves me. I don't doubt that. And I keep telling myself and him that the depression will get better. Covid has been what has him regressing to old coping mechanisms like isolation. I'm sad all the time, my own covid related depression. I have to keep telling myself there's a light at the end of it but with the world how it is, it's hard to see.
