I want to apologize for being so absent the last week or so. There is so much going on in my life, sometimes I just don’t know what to do with it all. I’ve felt that it may be better for me personally not to share my difficulties on here the last week or so because I feel like sometimes what I am going through may be harder for people to relate to or understand. I don’t know, maybe I’m wrong. It’s all just so complicated. It’s also just drawn out and very boring and I don’t want people to feel like they have to come up with something to say where there isn’t much to be said other than “I hope it gets better”
I don’t know. I’m conflicted.
My main goal right now, is to remind myself that I am fucking trying. My boyfriend tells me that I need to appreciate myself and the things that I do. And recognize that those things are really good for me. Also for him. That I shouldn’t under credit what I do. It’s so hard. Because I feel like I do nothing. I can’t go out and work a regular job. Even in the home, I’m very limited to what I can do. So I feel really insignificant a lot of the time.
Aside from trying to allow myself to be proud and appreciative of myself, which is a CONSTANT battle, I am also trying to spend more and more time on my art.
I know some of you have seen the work I’ve done. And I appreciate all of the positive support. I hope that as I build up an inventory of work, that I’ll be able to sell some of it off. But I have a lot of doubts as far as my quality and skill as an artist.
Anyway. I don’t always know how to be present here. So I’ve fallen a little quiet to recollect myself. I try to always be present in the streams and I respond to posts here as I can and as are healthy for me. I have found that while I always want to pour my heart out to people on the wall, that I have to be very careful. Some of the posts shared are very triggering because I can relate to them so much. And as much as I want to help, sometimes it puts me in a really anxious, depressed or uncomfortable state. So I have to just respond to those that I can, safely. But I hope you all know that just because I may have a hard time reading something and unable to respond, that it doesn’t mean that what you share isn’t important and doesn’t matter. I wish I could share with everyone all of the love I have inside of me.
Anyway, I’m rambling. I know the longer this gets, the harder it becomes for everyone to read. I just love this community and Heart support. We all have our struggles, even if we do or don’t share on this wall and everyone is just full of love. Thank you for creating this place. So that all of us have somewhere to go when we need to share, or when we don’t know how to share and just need a safe place to be.
I’m here. I know I don’t always know how to be very loudly present, but I am here. I support you. I support this cause. I support everything Dan and Casey are doing. And all of the people behind Heart Support.
And thank @Kayla for checking in on me so much the last week as I was coming through my relapse. I am in a much better place now. I read what I feel I needed to do of Re-Write book and I feel like I got what I needed out of it. I appreciate you being a friend.
And I appreciate @Danjo for always checking in on me to see where I am with my art and asking me if I’m keeping up with it like I wanted to. Its nice to have friends who take the time to care about you.
Because right now, I don’t always feel very cared for. In my direct life. I feel like I’m heavily relying on the internet to make me feel loved, wanted and needed. And sometimes I wonder if that’s healthy. I really can’t tell.
Thanks for listening to this scattered ramble.
