The last couple of days I haven’t been replying to the posts on micro.blog. I didn’t comfort or empathise or congratulate anyone and it’s not natural for me. Especially as there were so many emotional and honest posts. But these were days in which my heart shattered. I discovered I coul... Portufraise.micro.blog

@Miraz Thank you 🤗 That's why I like it here so much, everyone is so supportive.

@Portufraise I feel like it's a relay team here. Somedays you can't post because your own life overwhelms you, but you can rest assured that someone here will be holding the space and providing empathy. We have to take care of ourselves, that is key (and something I need to remind myself about on a regular basis.)

Holding a thought for you with good wishes for the future.

@Portufraise I'm sorry to hear that you have been through an emotionally painful patch, and that you are emerging from it now. Thank you for modeling taking the time that you need. And it's good to have you back.

@Portufraise Very, very nice to have you back. And of course you always have the freedom to take as much time as you need.

And since @macgenie has written it more beautifully than I ever could, that says it all.

Many warm greetings, all the best.

@Portufraise With the asynchronous nature of our connections today, sometimes I think someone has stopped communicating with me, but then - suddenly a very nice reply or email pops up. It’s easy to lose one’s bearings sometimes. And crying, I have discovered, is actually a good thing, because it’s physical, so you come out of it refreshed, and can start towards healing. I’m glad it turned out to be ok after that emotional dip! ☀️

@odd Maybe that's why I was seeing less entries than usual! You're right about crying. And thank you!

@Portufraise I'm glad to hear you're doing better now 😊 Sometimes we're just not in an emotional state to be capable of the things we could usually do, and that's OK! There's no shame in that. But it's always great to be able to come out of that state at the other side, and we're glad to have you back!

@Portufraise I’m glad you’re better and smiling again! Sometimes you just need a break to refuel and come out the other side stronger.

@jayeless Thank you 😊😊 I need to tell myself that sometimes (that there's no shame in not being capable).
