Now I know I did an update the other day just to say that I hadn’t abandoned this blog and I stated that I had been very busy. Well in all honesty there was another reason why I have been absent from here for a long time and the reason is because I lost myself.
I went through a time last summer where I became very lost and unsure of myself. I tried to make myself happy by forcing myself into life, I met someone and I forced myself to give things a go as I was sure that was what I needed to do in order to be happy again. Unfortunately it was not and as it turns out was more of a rebound relationship for me, as much as I hate to admit it.
After that ended I found that I fell deeper into darkness, I hated being around my friends as most are in happy relationships and have children and I just couldn’t be happy for them, as awful as it sounds. I didn’t want to be near my family, again for similar reasons. I lost all hope of ever being happy again but I still had enough of me left to realise that I needed help.
I sought help and for a while I didn’t think that would help either, but like a cartoon light bulb moment everything clicked into place and I began to feel better, I wasn’t wholly myself but it was a start and I enjoy that for as long as I could.
However, recently it has become clear again that I still have not found myself and I am struggling to stay happy. I think as silly as it sounds as it has been two years I’m not fully over my ex, well maybe not him personally but the life I had while I was with him. I was content back then and although I wasn’t truly happy I wasn’t alone and I often think that if he reached out to me, even as just a friend, I would take it.
It’s hard to explain why I still feel like this and I know that most people around me have begun to be frustrated with me, thus making me feel lonelier as I now don’t really have anyone to talk to.
I keep thinking that eventually I will pull myself out of this and I will find myself again, life can’t always be like this as there wouldn’t be much point. I really do enjoy writing on this blog and it actually helps me so I promise no matter how down I get I will continue to make new content for this blog.
