An Apology to My Readers

I did not think it would come to anybody’s notice how infrequent my posts have become. Surprisingly, I have had a few wonderful people reach out to me, inquiring if I’ve been well. I couldn’t be more thankful for this warm, welcoming blogging community for treating me as if I were family. It would be wrong of me to not give you a reason for my absence. Hence, this post.

To focus on my university entrance exams , I had temporarily stopped writing till September. September was a roller coaster ride for me, filled with both surprises and major disappointments. But throughout the time, ideas for posts kept popping in my head. I couldn’t hold back the excitement for my exams to get over so that I could continue writing full-time.

But when it all got over, I felt empty. I let self-demeaning thoughts creep in and doubted my writing capability. My motivation to write hit an all-time low. I realised I needed to give myself time to get out of whatever I’d gotten myself into and so decided not to post anything at all, until that spark to write came back.

It’s been 20 days since my last exam and I feel like I’m getting my spark back. I truly apologise to all of you who have wondered where I’ve been and give an apology in advance if my posts become scattered again in the near future.

  2. Hang in there, Shreya. Ups and downs are part of life. I think focusing on your education should be your priority. As it happens, after you’ve made a concerted effort to achieve something, you’re left exhausted. Whenever you doubt yourself, ask for support if you need it. Warm hugs and best wishes.

  3. Welcome back. It’s good to take a break especially when overwhelmed. The exams and new changes must have been exhausting and energy draining. Acknowledging that you are going through a process is good to. I go through such phases sometimes and I take sometime off time the time is right. There are always rythms in life. Happy you are well.

          1. Of course. I did, too. But it does make one feel warm to know there are people that care. Especially when you’re on break because you aren’t well. I shouldn’t have used the phrase “great about yourself”. I apologise for that.

          2. lol… no reason to apologize!! But it didn’t make me feel good in any form. I was surprised that people noticed and were so concerned but it never reached the point of feeling good. Probably because I’m not used to people caring about me… in fact I’m accustomed to people actively not caring about me. So it only felt weird. But I certainly appreciated all the fuss after I got over the embarrassment!!

  4. It’s alright. Move however you wanna move. But it’s always good to give your readers a reason that where have you been..
    So, welcome back!
    Real life stuff is always more important than anything else though!
