For almost two years now I have been doing my bit to raise awareness and challenge the stigma surrounding mental health issues, in particular BPD. Writing blogs has never come naturally to me and, more often than not, I have felt out of my depth each time I have waded into the fathomless ocean of the blogging world. I’m going to cut to the chase here: I like to write, but not like this.
The time has come for me to refocus my writing into something that I don’t dread. I want to, need to, go back to sitting down and writing because that’s what I want to do, not because I feel I ought to do it. Writing used to be a passion of mine, but for the last couple of years it’s felt like more of a chore.
Despite being the right decision, it has not been an easy one to make (not least because it reeks of failure and defeat), but it is crucial now that I prioritise my own mental-health and focus on the goals and projects that do not compromise that. If I can figure out how to do it, my website will officially close on Monday 11th December. For anyone who wishes to stay in touch, you can either follow me on Facebook, Instagram or, alternatively, you can contact me via my contact page before Monday 11th.
I want to thank all of my followers and subscribers, especially those of you who have taken the time to leave a comment or share my blogs. You have been an important part of an important part of my journey, and I could not have made it this far without you.
Thank you for all who have believed in me and my writing: I will not let you down. More importantly, I will not let myself down.
Take care, and hopefully see you ‘around’!
