I’m taking a blogging break.

I just made the same mistake twice and over-shared on a blog post. I took that post down now. I had a bad feeling and reread that post. I was disgusted. That post could have caused problems. I’m was best to trash it. Something just didn’t feel right. Maybe I’m overthinking again.

I’m sorry about that.

I need a break from blogging. A mental health break from blogging. I need to clear my head. Been a lot going on with my family. I’m scraping by mentally. Feeling emotionally exhausted.

I have some therapy assignments as a new weekly goal. Going to the park twice a week, going to meetup.com, and more. I’m doing this for my own sake. I chose to commit again to therapy. I’m in therapy to heal, learn, and change. I need to remind myself that this is what I want.

Less time away from my phone will help too.

I need experiences to write about.

Gotta get my groove back.


  • I didn’t see the post, but I just want to see that you shouldn’t beat yourself up too hard. We’re all human.Sometimes it feels good to just write things down. If it’s a situation you’re worried about – write it down on the page and then tear up the page. It’s cathartic.

  • I missed the post, but everyone gets caught up and over shares now and then. It happens, and it’s all good. It might cause problems, and it might not – who’s to say? You recognized it was an overshare and pulled it. What more can you possibly ask for from yourself? Feel better, energized and reborn soon!

    Dear Reilly… We’re all struggling these days. I think it’s essential to try to under stand what other generational groups are thinking. You have helped with that. Please don’t disappear…

  • Dear Reilly, I have hesitated to put in my 2 cents worth, but just wanted to mention that some of us have a pen name for our blogs and don’t share it with family so we can say whatever we want without worrying about how someone else will feel. We all have a need to be able to share the thoughts and feelings that weigh on us. Hope you’re back soon.

    • I like this idea Olivia. I think being somewhat anonymous was helpful last year. Maybe this is something I need to vent and feel connected. I think I might be burned out. So far this time away has helped. I’ll be back soon 🙂
