Full Confessional Friday! 1/17/2014

 

Be it Venial or Mortal (there's no escaping Original), we've all got secrets -- light, dark, funny, sad -- worth bringing to light. The act of confession can be liberating, mollifying and entertaining. Contrition? Repentance? A shot of Tequila? That's your call, sister.

A Quick Response and Full Confessional Friday

Every September since I started this blog six years ago, I unfortunately fall into hole, a pit that diminishes my joy of just about everything (like this blog and my laptop and ______ (you name it) and compels me to pull away from my regular life in order to spare those around me from being burdened with my downer mentality. My instinct is to keep it to myself and just knuckle through, knowing it will eventually end. This is not the first time I have taken a break and while I wish it was the last, I can't be assure you of this. Despite frustrating adjustments in medication and increased counseling, frankly, it is what it is. I also feel the need to point out that I am certainly not the only blogger who has done this. For what ever reason, it has always felt cheesy to post that I'm not going to post. Plus, this whole experience is embarrassing. For any of you who have experienced this emotional dip, I'm sure you can attest that everything regarding who you are and what you  normally accomplish feels like just too much. To those of you who have felt the need to bluntly share it in the comments section or personal email that you are "done" with this blog, I have tried to express myself in a much more eloquent and kind way, but I find it impossible to to do so. In other words: knock yourself out. If after years of sharing my scatterbrained life and hundreds of carefully crafted stories you feel the need to quit reading and let me know rather than naturally fade away, Godspeed. I have tried to regularly updated Full Confessional Friday so that this community can continue to thrive even when I'm unable to write anything of worth.

And with that, let's get to our regularly scheduled programming.
