I think I need to stop blogging for a while.
I’m not entirely sure why I am announcing this via a blog, as I am pretty sure my readership has shrunk significantly since the glory days of up to five people reading my posts if they could be bothered or if their Netflix wasn’t working. Force of habit I guess.
If you have by some chance been following my blog recently, then you will know that I have been dealing with some things recently. Things like deciding to get tested for Autism and my body image and feeling like I will never truly connect with anyone, because all I do is drive people away. Problems that pale in significance to Aleppo. Or the Brexit vote. Or the horrifying implications of Donald Trump in the White House. Or tragedies closer to home such as loved ones dying. How can I continue the way I am when there are things in the world that are so much worse than what I am going through?
I don’t know when I will start writing these again. If at all. I just need some time to get my head straight and get some perspective. Using this blog to chart my own personal drama was wrong. I said it before, I will say it again-I am sorry. The people who I wanted to notice me most likely paid me no attention at all. They probably stopped a long time ago. I shouldn’t put bad thoughts in other people’s heads because I drove my friends away.
If you have people you can talk to, keep them close. If you have the ability to make someone love you as much as you love them, see that power for the gift that it is and work hard to make each other happy. If you have the ability to hope, use it to inspire hope in others and make the world a better place. If you ever doubt you are a good person, look around and ask yourself: If I were a bad person, why do I have friends and Family? Would I be able to connect with any of them if they didn’t want to?
2016 was a bad year. Make 2017 better.
So that’s it for this year. I don’t know when I’ll be back.
