A month later, I am still struggling to get back to writing quality content because I feel like I’ve been doing this whole blogging-everyday-to-see-how-far-this-can-go for a really long time, now. And I find that I am falling short of thoughts to actually put out there. This has quite never happened to me before and it feels pretty much like one of the lowest lows in my life so far. I don’t know what went wrong and why this is happening lately but I know that this is a reminder that I need to take things easier on myself.
I had a few days away from social media, and for some reason, it was both the most stressful thing as well as the most peaceful time I had away in the longest time. In fact, I know that when I look back at these days in particular, I am not going to remember a single thing because of how stressful it has all been.
But when I finally heal from this, I’m going to know that things are going to be better. I am not going to give myself a difficult time over something I have no control over. Everything that is supposed to remain in the past needs to stay that way. The only way I’ll heal from this is if I stop trying to control things that are way out of my power. It is going to take me a long time to snap out of this slump, but I am done fighting this.
Nobody tells us that a major part of healing is to simply let things run their course, and focus solely on getting better. I mean, of course, it goes without saying. But nobody really tells us how important that can be for us in the long run. We push ourselves to do the best we are capable of, and not the best we can in that moment, and that is where a lot of our problems begin.
We are seldom told to make our well-being a priority, and I’ve experienced first-hand what happens to people who come to the realization a little too late. There’s not much we can do about it once things get out of hand.
So, why shouldn’t we focus on healing while we still can? Xx
