Well. Where was I?
I’ve been absent for a bit. Well, for ages. I have been mentally debating how to re-enter blogging.
I thought about ignoring what has been happening in my life and re-entering with a craft thing but that seemed to ignore the fact that I feel like we are all friends. It seemed deceitful.
I thought about explaining my absence. Writing one of those cryptic “I’ve been through a terrible time recently” blogs that don’t reveal what has been going on and remain elusive while eliciting many a sympathetic response which help to bolster the spirits.
Actually to be honest those warm comments would be much appreciated and are much needed so feel free to pour forth words of support and wisdom. You could even just simply write “support” in the comment column and I’d feel better!
I thought about being honest and revealing in my post, but as my recent problems involve other people I didn’t feel this would be appropriate. All I can say is that being a parent is hard. Its gut wrenching and scary at times. Those umbilical cords can really still tug at you. It opens you up to the most terrible of vulnerabilities and the most unimaginable grief. Parenting is so multifaceted; like a complex rock face you have to climb. It is at once completely mundane and completely profound. At times, it can be overwhelming.
I would also like to say that being a teenager is hard, Growing up is hard. Transitioning to adulthood, making decisions, finding identity, finding true friends, choosing relationships, breaking relationships - is all very hard and scary too. Sometimes all of this can collide and combust and it’s a hard time for all.
So I thought I’d re- enter blogging with a blog post.
Here it is.
