Dead – End

So  here I am looking at all the blogs available to read, and believe me I have read a number of them already, following a number of them and still searching. I don’t really know what I want and what I need and what I want and need to read but I keep going. It is as if I am looking for answers or clarification on here.

The more I read, the more I have questions and my questions seems to go unanswered and I miss being able to just reach inside and know my own answers, but that it where I am emotionally and it is okay. I have also found that I use to blog on another sites (different blogs of cause), and on this one I don’t seem to get any written comments / feedback but only a couple of emails and then the likes on the posts, but when you are stuck and in need of feedback, information or you just need someone to say something to let you hang in there it is kind of lacking.

Maybe it’s just me, or maybe it’s just an expectation that I had, but it feels like a dead end right now. I just feel like I have been let down in so many aspects in my life, that I am not able to pick myself up…

  1. You’ll pick yourself up again. And you’ll fall down again and have to do it all over. The biggest and hardest truth for me to swallow has been that my identity and worth are not defined or validated by anyone else. It’s just me. It’s just you. When I started blogging I had an expectation that it was like social media. It isn’t, or hasn’t been for me. But I use it as a modern journal, not a method to connect. However, I like when people comment and in this process it’s completely normal to want to connect with people. Hang in there. Believe in yourself. Don’t rely on others to determine who you are and what you’re worth. You are worth more than anyone else can know.

    • Thank you for this. I appreciate it. The intent was always to use it as a journal, but for some reason I find it hard (maybe because we don’t talk about it) to express myself here and not being able to communicate or reason, you’re right though this is a roller-coaster of emotions… today I am down, maybe tomorrow I will be up

  2. I’ve found while blogging that sometimes I’ll get comments, but usually I get more likes. I’m thinking the likes are an acknowledgment that the post was read. perhaps the reader is in agreement and doesn’t have anything additional to say or ask. I’ve found sometimes posing a question at the end of the post may get more comments. Perhaps if you have some specific questions you might just put them out there in your post.

    As far as blogging, I didn’t expect it to be like social media and I really didn’t put it out there as a journal. I originally started my blog because I was pissed and had a lot of anger building up. Releasing it by writing was therapeutic for me. As I am healing, I sometimes find it hard to think of something to write but then I read someone else’s blog and it gets me thinking!

  3. I’ve been reading but I really don’t have anything I can give you at this time in terms of feedback, insight, or advice. But I am here and reading and if I ever feel that I have something to contribute, I certainly will. Hang in there and stay strong.
