Damn It, I Need A Little Break


You guessed it from the title.


I promised myself that I’d never do this. But I HAVE to. For my sake.

Yes, okay. I’m taking a break.

Mainly for personal reasons, and I know this is supposed to be a place to help me overcome those problems, but at the moment certain people online, the amount of information that loads into my brain, the pressure…it’s making me quite stressed and anxious.

So I’m logging off for a while.

Maybe for a few days, a few weeks, a few months. Or a year. I HONESTLY don’t know. But I will be back. I WILL BE. I’m not making any promises, because we all know how terrible I am at keeping those, but I will be.

You’ve probably noticed that I haven’t been as active on your guys’ posts as normal and that was making me even more stressed. At least this way it’s official.

I’m also in the process of writing two books – one called ‘I’m Not Perfect’, which I’ve mentioned and another about the end of the world. A venomous clocked figure known as Death gathers the formerly dead teenagers to help him complete his unfinished business on Earth. I’m very excited about both and I want to focus on them for a while.

This also means I’m not going to be replying to comments, or emails, or KIK messages, or Twitter or Instagram messages. I’m honestly not trying to be rude, I just want to shut off.

When I started this blog back in August, I needed it. And it worked, for some time. Now, it’s stopped working. Maybe I’ve got too used to having a blog and it feels like second nature – maybe that’s the problem. Or that this just isn’t working out for me.

So yeah. Those are the reasons.

I’m sorry.

Thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Some of you know me better than others, but either way, I’ll miss you. More than I’ve ever missed anything I suppose, because in a way this blog became a part of my life. That was the problem. I was doing everything online, and nothing in the real world. Let me get my life sorted out first, then I’ll sort out my online life.

This might be the last post for a long while and the last time we speak, so I just want to say that it has all been amazing. And I love you.

Love, Em x

  4. Oh I’ll miss you a lot Em! But I know why you’re doing this and it makes sense – take a break if you have to! You’ve helped so many of us and we know how much you’ve dealt with in your life as well. Don’t apologise, and take care xx we’ll all be waiting with balloons and confetti when you make your return, whether that’ll be a week, a month or a year πŸ™‚


  5. You don’t need to apologise, Em, you’re allowed to take a break and shouldn’t feel pressure to be active on other people’s blogs when you don’t need to. I’ll miss you and will always be here whenever you may return. I hope you have a lovely break and things get better for you. Take care and stay strong, sweetheart.


  6. I’m going to miss you, Em! I’m glad that you are here, writing your amazing posts, they are really inspiring and lovely. You are an amazing person, and if YOU need to take a break then that’s what YOU should do. Be who you are, do what you need to do.
    Thank you for being such a lovely person,
    Skye xx


  7. God Em, I’ll miss you. I’ll miss you so much because you are amazing. And I’ve got things to say to you, so even if you don’t read this, I’ll still be saying it.
    You’re an inspiration. To me, to everyone; you put a smile on my face and make me happy. You’re SO creative, and that makes me admire you so much. Your books? they’re going to be great; I just know it. You write with fluidity and purpose and with a little piece of yourself and it’s beautiful.
    You’ve been there for me when ever I need it. You’ve been the person I go to when things get bad, and the comment I read with a feeling of knowing I’m not fighting this on my own.
    Em, you’ll take a break, but you’re not alone. You’re NEVER alone because you always have us. I swear to god, we’re always here.
    Love from Elm πŸ™‚ xx

  9. Oh Em, I feel so sad to hear you say this. 😦 You’ve lit up so many lives with hope while you were here, and brought happy smiles to so many faces. Your presence here was truly beautiful thing. But all the same, it’s YOUR life that matters the most, YOUR smile that is the most important. And if it’s going away that’ll make you feel better, then you SHOULD make that decision, as much as it saddens me to say that. But I can tell you this, WHEN (I’m not gonna use ‘if’) you come back, you’ll find that all of your friends were waiting for you, right here at this little corner of the blogosphere. YOUR corner. Love you, girl. Miss you.

  10. I’m really going to miss your posts, but I am so pleased that you have found out what you need to do. I sometimes feel the same – the blogging world is so consuming. Everyone is so lovely and caring, but ever since I started my blog I have spent more time online than I have in the ‘real world’. Good luck with writing your books and I will miss you. xxx

  13. Em, don’t be sorry. We all need to clear our minds once in a while, and if blogging is becoming overwhelming this is the best thing you can do. Take a time off for yourself, write those books (that seem interesting) and enjoy your moment.

    Have the best day ever,

    Nícia ❀
