Not exactly back

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?

    Glad everything’s okay with you.

    Confused
    Yeah, it really is. When you don’t have what to write, you simply read other blogs and something comes to mind.

    Look who’s trying to attribute her own kink to me 😛

  14. You can come visiting my facebook anytime. Whenever you feel down always remember that Jesus Loves you, and whatever situation you are facing He will surely bring you through. I was sad a few days back, but the knwoledge of the goodness of God and what He has done for me jolted me back up. Take care and have a blessed week.

    Glad you are back.
    Can you believe it has already been a year since we have said this?:

    Happy International Webloggers Day!

  16. Vickii says:

    Yay, you’re back … good to have you back! I’m getting more and more addicted to facebook, hmmm, at least you had the good sense to swap one addiction for another.

    I totally agree with your mum about the whole giving thing. I think spending a lot of time thinking about ourselves, our issues, our problems seems to magnify them while spending some time giving to others in various ways really does make you feel better about yourself.
