Struggling…

Posted on

I am so sorry that this blog is pretty much dead now and I feel like I owe you an explanation…r

The truth is, I feel very overwhelmed by social media and the whole online world.

Every time I open up Instagram, I feel nauseous.

And it’s a shame because I’d love to catch up with my friends but I just can’t bear to do anything. Even talking to others is exhausting.

I’ve also been feeling low about myself and how I look and lack the energy to dress up. I just brush my hair and go. I think I’ve only worn makeup twice in the past month… I just… Can’t be bothered anymore.

It took me over a month to edit an 8 minute video and I don’t have the energy to post it onto YouTube.

I’m so tired….

It’s kind of lonely… But I can’t bear the thought of being on my phone unless it’s to read webtoons.

So yeah, that’s where I’m at right now…

Speak soon…

What do you think?

    No need to do anything you don’t feel like doing, it’s not a rule being online. Just breath <3 I've been "scolded" by some of my old friends for getting off of facebook or instagram or not using the apps, or just disappearing online for long periods of time as if I'm doing something bad, while in reality I'm slow living & enjoying the treasure of every present moment with myself & everyone who's by my side. Be as picky as you need to be, Lizzie. People who have pure feelings towards you will never leave your side or get uninterested. The moment right now, of you feeling like that, just treasure it, it's not a bad thing at all <3 It must be so nice just brushing your hair & leaving home or just opening your phone to read webtoons, so cozy, just cherish such time <3 🙂 I've been having for two months the worst time mentally & physically to the point I'd feel ugly, so I'd just do my make for myself to see haha & simply do the things I love in my safe private space without sharing a thing. Take your time & don't take it as if it's bad, Lizzie. Own it, be bold! <3

    I am glad to know I am not the only one going through this. I get sick just being on my phone! I deleted Instagram but I have yet to notice a difference. I think it is just because the online world nowadays is so toxic. Too many people telling you what to do and how to think. I don’t really have any answers but I hope you feel better soon! Take all the time you need and don’t let the online world pressure you into felling like you have to do things a certain way!

    Take a break if you need it! Blogging should be fun and if it’s not fun, step back until you feel the energy to do it again.
    I hope you feel better soon.

    I’m so sorry you’ve felt so tired and overwhelmed, Lizzie. 😥 I have very similar feelings to yourself, I grew up on the early internet but I feel like the online world has turned very sour in these past few years for a lot of people and left many feeling drained and unable to keep up, I imagine even more so if they have any sort of following because that extra pressure is there.
    Please know it’s not the result of anything you’ve done wrong and that there’s a lot of expectations on people right now to constantly be updating things, constantly be posting, and constantly be consuming. It’s a lot and it’s especially a lot on our brains with so much information and eyes being on us all the time, I don’t think people are naturally built to be able to handle this kind of thing all the time.
    Please know if you need to take a break that’s perfectly okay and I think anyone who has any actual consideration for you would never expect you to post when you don’t feel up to it, you are only human!
    Wishing you the very best and hope you get lots of rest and proper time to yourself. ❤
