Hi Everyone. Let me start off by thanking each and every one of you for sticking with me and staying subscribed to me over these last few months. I haven’t posted on here and a while and, honestly, I can’t blame the people that left.
I’m going to be 1000% honest in this post. Many of you know but some might not, but my mom passed away in May of 2019. It was undoubtedly the most horrible experience I’ve ever gone through. I took a break from all social media for a while, but eventually, I felt so much guilt for not being as active as I was that I went back. And looking back now, it was much earlier than it should have been. I rushed back into things so quickly and my posts, the amount of them, and the lack of effort I put into them shows.
Eventually, I just stopped caring about my posts in general and just put them up to be there. And then I even stopped caring about that. I stopped putting out all content except for reviews on Goodreads. Then, I took a much-needed break and when I was finally ready to come back, my dad passed away.
No matter what relationship you have with your parents, losing both of them in less than a year is an experience that no one should have to go through and other people can’t possibly understand. It’s so hard to put into words… To lose people that have been a part of your life since the very beginning. You honestly feel like a part of you is gone and that your life ended with theirs. You look back at your past with those people and it feels like another life.
I wasn’t ready to come back to my blog or Instagram after losing my parents. But I’m finally at a place in my life now where I feel okay. I’m ready to come back and talk with people and share my love books again. Because trust me, there is NO way I could have made it through this year without books.
I don’t think I’ll ever get back to posting one-two times a day like I used to, but that’s because that portion of my life is over and I’m a different person than I was a year ago when I started this blog. With all of that being said, I love you all and I am so happy to get back into the swing of things! I look forward to all of your comments and messages! Thank you for your continued support.
