Blog Page Deletion? Don’t Think I Could Forgive You!

Music saves the day again! I was listening to one of my favourite tracks called Prayer In C by Robin Schultz with Lilly Wood and the Prick (below) whilst I was in a worldwide destruction of a mood.

I was going to delete this blog page.

How defeatist and paranoid of me, after all the support and encouragement from people who know me intimately.

Don’t think I could forgive you

I’m not famous or an established author etc. I’m just a woman who has learned to adapt to life after losing much. My career, my self-worth and quite a chunk of my health. My mental health is like living each day trying to control a forest fire. Some days it’s well contained and on others, like today, it insists on raging and consuming happy healthy branches reaching out for hope.

I imagine I’m not the only one who’s felt suddenly overwhelmed and insignificant. In fact I imagine scores of people have taken a sledgehammer to their confidence.

Persistence and self-belief is crucial.

To everyone who is anyone, you just have to believe in the value of your story. Your thoughts matter and so do you as a person.

Huge shout out to Richard Charles Stevens and Ashley at Mental Health @ Home for being supportive and influential.

And to everyone else who’s visited my blog, you have my unreserved thanks.

  1. This is definitely a MOOD. โค Been tempted more than once to call it a day, shelve everything and consign all my scribblings to the ashheap during this past year! Helped me a lot knowing so many others have doubts and we're all struggling together with our different crazy hangups, trying to make sense of it all ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป BIG HUGS ๐Ÿค— ๐Ÿ’•

    1. Aw man that’s awful to hear you’ve felt the same. Many seem daunted, disheartened, intimidated and confused within these enormous platforms. I’m a wee krill in the Atlantic ocean trying to build confidence ๐Ÿ™ƒ Never ever lose faith in yourself and remember those who support you, encourage you and mostly just be you. Nothing else. A valuable word of advice I was given by author and friend Richard Charles Stevens here on Rivers Of Grue ๐Ÿ’œโš”๐Ÿ›ก

    1. Aw no Tara that awful for you! It’s a gut-wrentching feeling isn’t it and finding that glimmer of strength to go on with your message can be hard.
      Great song isn’t it, addictive to play on a loop ๐Ÿ˜ƒโค

  2. Big huge hug! I think what makes this whole blogging thing worthwhile for all of us crazy folks is that we’re all struggling with various kinds of crap, and it’s a lot less lonely to all be struggling at the same time. โค๏ธ

  3. Definitely been there. In one of my latest blog posts, thinking as I am writing, I determined the analogy that best fit the scenario, is like reading a redacted government document. Trying to make it make sense. To those that know you, that give you that support, theyโ€™ve seen the redacted parts and still think the content is worthwhile. Bear that in mind when you are able to come to your senses during these fits/episodes/challenges/ or whatever you qualify them as. I struggle constantly too. Your content out of context, causes people to fail to understand the scenario in the best possible wayโ€ฆ donโ€™t self-edit your feelings, not that I am volunteering to work with you on them, lol, but since you said you almost deleted the post: DONโ€™T! Keep sharing.

    1. Thanks for your reply! I imagine I do cause people to fail to understand wtf I’m on about but I love how you’ve advised me not to edit my feelings. I never do, I write in the moment then fire off like a shotgun loaded with thoughts.
