I adore this blog and every single one of my followers — you have all made this experience in the fandom bright and interesting! I will never regret starting this blog.
But over the course of the past few weeks, I’ve noticed that in all aspects of my life I’ve been unable to help myself. I’ve been triggered easily lately, I have anxiety starting full-time contract work at my job, and my boyfriend has family problems that he needs a lot of support with. I feel as though I haven’t been able to give my all (which is what people deserve) in those parts of my life, including the blog. I haven’t been able to dedicate the time to work, my boyfriend, my family, you, and myself because I haven’t been taking care of myself. And how can I expect to take care of other people when I’m not building myself up to get through past experiences and grow from them?
So I’ve thought for a long time on this, and I feel I need to take a short break (after today’s 12 posts) from creating confessions. With the new season starting up, the blog has been exploding! It makes me so happy that this is interesting and fun for all of you! But I don’t think I’ll be able to give the quality of confessions you deserve when I’m being pulled in so many directions right now. So I would like to take a small hiatus to regroup and have self-help time. When I come back, I will be refreshed and motivated to create pictures for my nearly-3000 followers!
I’m tearing up while I write this, because I sincerely don’t want to disappoint any of you with this news. I just feel… right now it’s for the best. You deserve the best of me, my boyfriend does, my family does… and I deserve the best of me too. I just have to figure out how to get there. And I will!
I’ll be turning off anon messages for the next few days, and then I will close the ask box after I’ve given everyone the chance to message me with questions or concerns. I won’t be permanently deleting any of the confessions in the queue or ask box (I will just put them on hold for now).
You’re more than welcome to visit me on my personal blog. It’s a more relaxed atmosphere. I would love to keep up with all of you! And don’t worry, I will not delete this blog now, merely take a break. You can still follow for updates in the future!
Thank you all for being kind, lovely, and always understanding. I adore you. <3
I’ll reblog this to keep it on the first page of the blog. :)
“I had an exam today. The essay that I was to do was entitled ‘Decribe an unforgettable person’. I chose Eddard Stark.”
“I preferred the television interpretation of Tyrion’s trial in the Vale than the scene GRRM originally wrote.”
“Gemma doesn’t look like the Asha I pictured, but I think I like her more than what was in my imagination.”
“When someone who hasn’t read all the books yet posts a confession about a character that dies further in the story with their hopes on how the storyline might go it is OK with me. Everyone has expectations. The things that make me feel sad are the reactions under these confessions. Even by mentioning “haha” or “oh my sweet summer child”, you give those people, who try to avoid spoilers, a certain hint. That’s kind of a spoiler for me, as well.”
“The show’s opening is was the first ting that caught my interest. Due to the opening I fell in love with the show.”
