I made a big change this week. I quit blogging…
…for a different site.
I used to share my stories of recovery and addiction at another site. It was started by another blogger I kind of know, and she asked me to be a part of it. Of course I was thrilled! So for several months I’ve contributed posts and really enjoyed it.
The past several weeks, though, I’ve kind of been feeling like I needed to pull back. She’s taking the site and running with it, creating some great new ideas for in-real-life stuff. She asked me to be a part of that stuff and I immediately said yes – though I probably should have thought it over more carefully. I’m really, really good at taking on too much stuff.
So anyway, I’ve been ignoring these misgivings and just going full steam ahead. That ended up not working out for me, because I kind of exploded last week. I got into a massive argument with the woman who runs the other site and impulsively quit it all. Usually, that kind of move is a bad thing, but…
It feels good.
I wish I hadn’t ended it like I did, but I feel relieved that this is the only site I “have” to contribute to. And really, I don’t have to write here if I don’t want to. So no pressure at all!
Moral of the story: Sometimes, being impulsive pays off, even if you look batshit crazy in the moment.
