I’m writing to you to let you know that, due to personal circumstances, I will be taking a short break from my blog.
I started this blog to genuinely help people who have dealt with similar situations to me, and it breaks my heart to say that this situation is one of the reasons that my partner of six years chose to break things off with me this week.
Chronic illness is hard on everyone, it doesn’t just effect the person suffering through it. It becomes a burden that everyone in that persons life must carry. For some people, that burden is too much, and I understand that.
That being said, I want to say something loud and clear. As a person, you are not a burden. I am currently suffering from a huge loss of self esteem and strength that I had spent years accumulating, and reminding myself that I am not a burden and not defective is almost impossible at the moment. I feel broken. But logically, I know that I’m not. I know that none of you are. You’re just stuck in a situation that you had no choice over.
So for now, I will be focusing on myself and on healing my incredibly shattered soul. But I will be back in no time, to continue sharing my stories and experiences in the hopes of helping someone out there who is suffering and needs a little bit of hope and knowledge that they are not alone in it.
Wishing everyone all the best until then. Xx
