Fitting In

I have been really struggling with this blog lately. As much as I love it to pieces, over the past few weeks, whenever I have sat down to write something, my mind has just gone totally blank. Even though I have been doing it for years, sometimes I just feel completely lost and out of place in this whole blogging game. I’ve just been feeling like I don’t really fit in anywhere, I am quite a shy person and even on social media I have found myself talking less and less. I hate that I started to feel this way and knew I needed to take a step back – the house wasn’t going to decorate itself anyway, so I used my free time as a perfect excuse to start.

So, I took a few weeks off from blogging and social media, just popping the odd post up here and there. When I’m feeling like this, the old social’s really don’t tend to help me out too much! I find the constant pressure and comparison that can be found on social media so tiring. It got to the point that I started to think of ways I could change this blog to fit in more, but what’s the point, I blog about what I love and the minute I stop doing that, I become a fake. Which I would never be.

After a little while off, I feel so much better and I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t really care if I fit in or not, I mean what exactly am I trying to fit in with? There are no blogging guidelines or rules.

I don’t really know what I am trying to say here, but I just wanted you all to know that I have had my little blip and The Mini Mermaid shall continue better than ever…

    I’m so sorry it’s been so long since I last commented but I really wanted to come and read this post and leave you a message as I can completely relate and I really hope that you’ve had enough time to rest and take a step back. Sometimes social media, as amazing as it can be, can be a real hindrance and you’re right as well when it comes to comparison – it can be lethal. Taking a step back always works for me and never feel bad for needing to take a break as you come first. I love your blog and your posts and I am sorry I haven’t always commented and left you messages – life has been hectic but I am planning on getting into a regular habit of leaving blog comments now, so I’m glad to see you back and hope you’re doing OK! – Tasha

    I love this post so much! There are so many days I feel the same as yourself so sometimes it really does help to take a step back and have a break.

    I love what you write about and I’ll always love whatever you choose to blog about, I know I will. 😀

    You’re a star and as always, keep up the great work. ^_^
