Sorry for being away for the past several days after my emotional Tired post last Thursday.
I want to thank all of you who left me such caring and supportive comments on that post. It means a lot to hear from you when I'm crashing and burning. There's the SPN Family and then there's my LJ Family and it's so nice to know you're out there. *hugs*
I want to begin by apologizing for indicating in that post that I was the only one with a busy and exhausting life. That wasn't my intention at all. All of us struggle with our lives and things we have to do, long hours, family, drama, etc. I know this. I never meant to make my troubles more important than any of yours. I'm sorry if I offended anyone.
The only way I can try to explain that Tired post is that things just piled up on me all at once and due to me being tired and drained from the day, I wasn't able to shake it all off like I often do. And even though I did think a lot before making that post, I made it without thinking everything through and let my emotions run away from me. Never a good idea, but I'm human - it happens. I felt hurt and I wanted to put it out in the universe - not that it really helped me because it didn't. Yeah, sometimes sharing doesn't help one heal. But it seemed like a good idea at the time.
I also didn't intend on staying away from posting here on LJ for more than one day. But the hurt feelings and the message from a friend spiraled me into a mini-depression. It also got me thinking long and hard about all sorts of things in my life, and for that I am grateful. So as difficult and painful as the past few days have been, I've emerged with a sort of plan and I'm ready to get back to my online life again. Btw, I never really left...I was lurking around on LJ the whole time.
And I can't promise that this sort of meltdown won't happen again. As I said, I'm only human, and I sometimes let my emotions dictate my actions instead of common sense.
Thank you again for those of you who said you enjoy my daily posts. It means so much to hear that. ♥ :)
