Why You Don’t See: What you don’t see on this blog

In reference to: This Post.

  1. Your lives are busy. You’re not always on the computer, you’re in different time zones, and so, you won’t always be there when I may need you, or vice versa.
  2. Venting doesn’t help me. It just makes me feel worse. 😦 At least, venting in the sense of writing dark poetry, dark art, dark posts about how dark I feel.
  3. It’s my own responsibility to take care of myself. Help and support is always welcome but, well, see number 1.
  4. I don’t think posting when I’m feeling off or bad or stressed out is conducive to what this blog is about. It just doesn’t feel like it belongs, and I really want to take them down whenever I do manage to publish them (which is just once thus far).
  5. I can only reasonably rely on myself. That, and hotlines and close family/friends. Sometimes though, I’ll just be in that slump where there’s no one really around or not that I can connect with and so it’s up to me to be there for me.
  6. The stress will pass. It’s just a process of me being patient to wait for it to pass, while also taking responsibility that I can DO things about it to help it pass quicker, too.
  7. Not doing positive coping strategies no longer makes sense to me. Which is not to say I don’t have the urges to do negative coping strategies, it’s just that I know doing them won’t help me and therefore, makes no sense to engage in, even if my brain is making no sense, too.
  8. This video – 4 minute stress buster
  9. That video. Background guided meditation
  10. Changing my music choices.
  11. Writing on my wrists (IOS-ink on skin):
  12. Putting away the stuff that stressed me out (i.e. packing up Stats stuff and setting it closed and aside)
  13. Finding some Youtube videos that have nothing to do with anything I’m doing.
  14. No longer listening to music.
  15. Comfort eating! Yum, creme puffs!


And yeah, this post too. I guess if the post or lack of post can spin me off to positively cope, that’s all that really matters. Against my better judgment, I’ll keep that previous post up on here and the link is still open until 9:oop EST! πŸ˜€ That’s a good hour. πŸ™‚

I may also do some reading. Hmmmm.


Stay safe, peeps. ❀ ❀ ❀

  1. I just realized that the last few weeks, it seems I was hiding behind this “blog” for comfort but then I have left the “real world behind… responsibilities and what not. Now I have to face the music.
    I have to stay on task. I hope you feel better. Take it easy.

    • That can be difficult to do, facing the music and what you’ve been trying to avoid. I know I’ve been avoiding looking at my Stats stuff today, but I’ll have to face it sooner and really, it’s better if I do that sooner rather than later. :/ It’s tough and sometimes blogging just seems far more fun and enjoyable than the crud we have to do πŸ˜›

      Thanks, I’m doing much better today, although I haven’t gotten into the Stats stuff again. I have to figure out whether I’m going to cancel my therapy appointment tomorrow or just do a phone call. Decisions, decisions.

      Thanks for your words though. ❀ ❀ ❀

    • Hey there, thanks for stopping by!! πŸ™‚

      They’re doing better now, I set aside the Stats work and am just watching an episode of House MD. And I’m getting a bit tired so I’ll be off to catch some zzzz’s soon πŸ™‚

      Thanks for stopping on by! ❀ ❀ xxxx

  2. It’s hard when no one’s online when you need them… I’m sorry you’re in such a tough time. If you want to talk, I’ll be on off and on for a while. Good for you for doing so many positive coping strategies, even when you don’t feel like it!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  3. It’s a tough lesson to learn that we are the only people who can be here for ourselves 100% of the time. It’s tough learning to comfort ourselves when we are distressed. Of course, leaning on others can definitely help, but it’s up to us to be our #1 support.
