My Life: Why I Stopped Writing

Today, I am doing something a little different.

Usually, I try to think of topics to write about, but lately I haven’t been feeling it.

I’ve been at a point in life where I am trying to make sure I am okay. If you’ve read any of my older post from a few years ago, you would know that I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression in the past. I haven’t been back to that low place in a while but lately I’ve been busy trying to figure out what I want out of life.

I want to get a little personal and real with my readers today because behind the articles and tips I am a real person that goes through things just life you. Lately, I’ve been trying to transition into a career while working at a job that I hate.

Since I’ve started this job I’ve been taken advantage of, called stupid, talked about and attacked verbally and I was at a low place. I try not to complain because, I know that things could be worst but, I’ve been trying to find a way out of this misery.

I am sharing this with you because, I want to use my life to inspire and encourage everyone to keep going. No matter what you are going through or what you are facing, know that God has a bigger plan for you. Lately, I’ve been feeling very optimistic because I’ve been shifting my focus back on God and feeding myself with things uplifting.

After going out on a girls night out this weekend, it helped me put things into perspective. I realized that partying and drinking became a void for me to mask the problems that I was facing. As I woke up that Sunday morning with a hangover, all I could do is thing about was the goodness of God. I realized that I haven’t been true to myself and I am ready to get my life back on track.

My biggest weakness was the fact that I sought validation and I relied on it to determine my worth. Today, I am deciding to take back my power and be true to myself. For the rest of this month I will be writing more personal stories because I believe that there is healing in my journey.

There are so many topics that are dear to me that I will be talking about.

Stay tuned.

  1. I can relate, completely. I too am working a job that I hate, have been for over 14 years. You are going to make it through. Once you do, it’s going to feel so good to walk out and know that you never have to return to a job that you hate. Keep believing and working towards what you want, because God gave you that gift for a reason. He want’s you to do something with it. I hope everything works out well for you and that you will soon be able to do the thing you love full time.
