Losing my motivation and drive for everything
Hey Beauties, you will have probably noticed that I haven’t posted in quite a while now. I went from posting weekly to nothing for the past month. The thing is, my mental health took a huge nosedive. I was slowly drowning in this infinity pool that had appeared in my head and because it came so unexpectedly, I wasn’t prepared and I sank fast. I had no motivation and drive left in me.
My head was so full of the shit I tell myself and trying to deal with health issues alongside life’s general side sweeps, I just couldn’t focus on the positives anymore. I was trying so hard to ignore everything but it just became too much. I’d forgotten why I’d started blogging in the first place. I let my obsessiveness take over so posting, writing, social media, all became a chore. I’d lost my passion.
As bloggers, we have a passion for what we write about. Myself, for example, I love to share about how life is with chronic health conditions and help others not feel alone. A prime example of this was when I share My PTSD Story with you.
I love sharing my life with you and helping others feel not alone but, sharing everything and going over it so much can also affect my own mental state. It can often be hard going over and over all the things I’ve gone through, seeing it in front of my eyes makes it all that more real. I often try and convince myself it’s all just a dream. It’s so important that we don’t forget to find ways to practice self-love and refresh our minds.
The reality though is that it’s not a dream. This is my life, this is me. The more I write about it and get it out of my system is also all part of my therapy. I’m getting it out of my head and giving myself some peace.
But I’m back, I’m going to be less strict with myself when it comes to writing so I can make sure I keep my motivation and drive strong. Thank you for sticking with me!! Don’t forget that you can contact me any time through email or my social media pages. Stay safe!!
