Some of you may have noticed the low frequency of posts in the past few months. I’m not the most prolific of bloggers, but since this is a personal blog I have tried to make at least a post a month, if not once a week.
For the past six or seven months I’ve been facing quite a few hurdles in my personal life. My response to them has been to throw myself into anything and everything that will allow me to escape them for a while. Everything from online debating to excessive reading. Escapism at its best 😛
The one thing I haven’t been doing much is writing, especially not of the cathartic sort. Mostly because I was having trouble accepting the stuff that was going wrong and was in a sort of denial. What writing I did do was mostly on issues unconnected with my life.
Writing has been for me my primary form of communicating with myself (and with others) in a logical and rational manner. Until the jumble of thoughts in my head are formulated into written words I can barely understand my own emotions, let alone make decisions or cope with circumstances.
In retrospect, my abstinence from cathartic writing in the past few months probably contributed to an approaching critical point of emotions and issues. The consequent mental meltdown occurred, rather unfortunately, last week, right before my exams. Since then I’ve resumed writing, and begun the long, slow, but rather satisfying task of sorting out the tangles of thoughts in my head.
Some of what I will write over the next few weeks and months will find its way here, some of it will not. But this post is both an explanation and a sort of promise, to myself and to you guys, to return to frequent postings.
So yeah, fingers crossed 🙂
See you guys soon. 🙂
