I haven’t exactly been too busy, but neither have I been idle since I last posted.
I really had to take a break from blogging because it was getting too addictive. It was more like switching addictions — as bloggers whose Facebook walls I’ve been trolling will attest.
Why exactly did I leave? Well, for one I got a little depressed — you know the kind of depression when your friend signs online and the only joke you can think of is about you taking a bottle of pills, freaking her out instead. Contrary to belief, I didn’t get any anonymous-type comments (I’ve gotten them before, but my blog automatically moderates those of people who’ve never commented here), but seeing so much negativity around, I thought I would snap — the pills joke was half-serious.
I went back to my project but I couldn’t find any fulfillment — my account was heading for the red, and I just couldn’t get any Joy-Joy feelings. Then I remembered what my mom told me so long ago about giving.
I love to give, but preoccupation with myself had perhaps loosened some bolts in my head. I’ve been giving in unexpected places for the past two weeks or so, and I believe things are looking up now.
Well, I’ll stop patrolling people’s Facebook walls. I believe I can spend that time blogging, eh?
