I posted this on my Facebook page last week, but some nice/hello-ish types aren’t on Facebook so I am popping it here too. Just in case. Ignore if if you read it already or if you just don’t want to read it. I AM FINE WITH THAT!
Overshare warning! Here’s a thing. It’s a bit embarrassing, but we’re all humans and it’s good to talk about the tough times in case someone else is feeling a bit this way.?? We’re in this together, right?!
So, if you have contacted me about something over the last
18 24 months, and I have not replied. I am really sorry. ??I don’t know how to explain it, except that my life took such a difficult turn for a whole bunch of reasons, and I was unable to do much more than put one foot in front of the other.
I am so lucky to have people get in touch about things and to be given opportunities, but during this very long and awful period it really felt like dipping back into a bigger life would bring so many more pressures / conversations – when I was already feeling really overwhelmed by circumstances.
So, if you have been in touch with me and I didn’t reply. I am sorry. ??Please know that it was RUDE but also felt like the only way forward … a way to put my energy into making things better for my wee family. I really was unable to gather my strength any other way. ??Thank you for getting in touch and I truly do appreciate it … if you did do that! Sorry if anyone was upset my my quietness and my ignoring. ??My total bad.
Also – if someone in your life who is not me behaves like this, don’t assume they don’t like you/care about you/your thing. Maybe they are just dog paddling slowly through some really swampy and crap stuff that might even be out of their control.
PS: I AM okay. Love youse. x
