Hello guys, I know I haven’t been active in awhile. I’m absolutely ok, don’t worry. I just needed some time to get away from the stress of this blog and enjoy tumblr on a different account, where I could reblog the things I enjoyed and interact with friends. I realized that, as lovely as this blog is and how wonderful it is to help so many people, it’s just become too much for me. I pride myself in how many people have come to this blog seeking comfort and help and were able to be comforted. We made it all the way to 35k followers. That amount just blows my mind, I never thought I’d ever have that many. I am so happy, so glad, that out of all the blogs I’ve run, this one has become so successful. Thank you all for supporting me, it means the world.
Since this blog is my main account, I cannot have mods. If I could have mods here, then I feel it would be a lot easier to run and maintain everything. But if you can imagine, having thousands of people come to you seeking advice, comfort, etc. can take quite a toll on someone mentally. It has just become more of a stress for me rather than a source of positivity and happiness. And that is no one’s fault; you all just want someone to listen to you and want some advice. But I am one person, a girl struggling with her own issues. It makes me sad to know I can’t do this anymore, and I wish I could continue with this blog but I know within me I don’t have the energy and strength to do it. I don’t have the time, and my advice feels more robotic than I want it to be, instead of purely from the heart. And I am so sorry, I am sorry to everyone I wasn’t able to get to. In a way, I feel as if I’ve failed. But I know that’s not the case, I hate feeling like I’ve failed when I haven’t. I’ve succeeded, I’ve gained a huge amount of followers, support, and I have helped so many people. It is my dream to help people. But I guess I didn’t realize how big this blog would become and how hard it is to juggle such a huge responsibility.
I have debated on what to do with this blog for awhile. Deleting it feels, well… it feels like a waste, in a way. I have a lot of resources, a lot of edits and other things on here that I want to keep. I want this blog to stay open for anyone that wants to browse my animals tag, my videos tag, my edits, etc. It’s all there for you, as well as my resources tag, if any of you need it. I will leave this blog up. Will I come back? I don’t think I will. I don’t want to promise you guys I’ll come back, because then I’ll feel obligated to. I don’t think I’ll be back. I am sorry to everyone who is saddened by this, but I learned a huge lesson running this blog. Sometimes, it’s important to put yourself first. Your health, your mental health; it’s the most important thing. Don’t push yourself to help a bunch of people when you don’t have the mental strength for it; it’s just healthy. It’s ok to admit that you can’t handle the responsibility of helping people, be it your friends or family or others.
Thank you guys so, so much. For everything. For following me, for supporting me, for coming to me for advice when you felt you had no one to turn to. It has been a complete honor to help so many of you. I hope every single one of you know how brilliant you are. I sound so cheesy, and I know this is long but it’s hard to say goodbye to you all. However, I am not leaving tumblr for good. I’ve simply moved to a new account to focus on what I love! Video games!
It’s been wonderful, being part of this blog and giving advice and helping you guys. I love you all very much. Take care
