PSA: I AM BACK.
To my fans-
Sorry AF! I went on a little hiatus for a bit and I don’t really have an excuse for my absence. I started this blog almost a year ago (time sure does f***ing fly!) for reasons that used to be beyond hard to explain. I started this blog almost a year ago to acknowledge and release inner demons that were so hard to escape. And, truthfully, I started this blog almost a year ago because I was continuously forgetting to love myself in a society that doesn’t always acknowledge or accept your existence. Blogging became a way to cope with everything going on in my life.
Lately, I’ve been letting the struggles, limitations, and discouragement get the best of me and I think that’s why I’ve been holding off on the writing. The last few months have consisted of lots and lots and lots of the unexpected: arguing with and losing friends, continuously getting shut down from jobs, and hopeless dating (shocker!). Yes, there are far worse things in life and, yes, I’ve experienced far more painful things. But, these unfortunate experiences happening all at once became such a hardship. It just felt like I was never going to win.
In the last year and a half, I feel like I’ve made such significant strides in bettering myself. I mean, I smile more, laugh more, and cry less! That’s huge for where I was at this time last year. Unfortunately, I’ve come so far and still let the most insignificant moments affect the woman I’ve slowly discovered and have learned to love. I’m realizing that this journey I am on is never going to be easy. Yes, it will get easier as time progresses, but there’s always going to be something or someone that gets in my way. I can’t keep letting these moments in my life get in the way of continuing my happiness….or my blogging.
