"I’ve been estranged for about 8 years now, so the idea of fending for myself during important holiday periods isn’t exactly alien to me. What IS alien to me however, is learning to manage everything I’ve learned about independence through a worldwide pandemic.

When lockdown began at the start of the year, almost everyone I knew immediately went back to their home countries/cities, meaning I was one of the only people I knew still living in my halls of residence. I got to socialize with people here and there, but I didn’t really get to have meaningful interaction with a friend until July this year.

If you’re reading this and wondering what you can do to support a friend who’s estranged, just ask them – different people will be aware of their own boundaries and difficulties. Some people like myself might be used to it, but for others, it might still be fresh in their minds and making their lives difficult. Every situation is going to be different, and approaching the situation with a little bit of kindness and an open mind will go a long way."
