Well, for starters because I am human and I am allowed.
Life is hard... like super hard. I know everyone knows that, but this is where I'm at. I have a year and some change under my belt now back in college, getting my Masters in Business Administration, I am still working full time as the office manager at Southeastern Plastic Surgery Center, while still maintaining a home and marriage. Don't get me wrong, I love where my life is right now, but dammit it gets rough!
I've learned that life has its seasons, and some seasons are busier than others, and some have be more positive than others. This season has been both, it is where I have had the most growth not only personally but professionally. I've learned that I am allowed to take a break from the outside world and hold yourself accountable to only you. Your mental health is far more important than keeping appearances. You cannot pour from an empty cup, you cannot give a tenth of yourself in all directions... I mean you can, but it wont last long and its half assed. I would rather be 100% in and present than only part of my attention for a portion of the time. This blog and social media were the first to go.
You a re allowed to let part of yourself, or what you feel like is part of yourself fade. You are completely entitled to allowing yourself to fade into the background and focus on yourself and your well being. At the end of the day, social media is always a great outlet, but we always put our best lives out there, it may not be the ugly truth, but it's the truth we are comfortable with. My truth is that I was having a hard time balancing everything I had in my life. I am human, and it happens. This issue is if it goes unacknowledged and unaddressed. Know the signs of being stretched thin, and fade out the unnecessary things until you are ready to bring them back to light, if you ever are.
