Why I Keep This Blog At Arms Length

arms lengthI don’t post here very often and there is a very good reason for that. There have been times I wish I could be more a part of the community but I have a hard time spending too much time in depression forums or around the topic in general.

I find I don’t want to spend that much time thinking about my depression in any kind of ongoing basis. Yes, I struggle with it daily, but I don’t think it’s productive to obsess about it. I need to focus my mind elsewhere. That is partially how I cope, to have other productive things to do and think about. Everybody has their own ways and I don’t want to cast aspersions on anyone. In the very early days of my depression and especially right after I started Lexapro, I gained a lot from certain forums and did spend more time there. But where I am now, I can’t be there. I have this wonderful blog for myself when I feel like I have something to say and if you leave comments or questions here I will be happy to interact with you. But I limit my time on the topic and I might suggest you do to. What you focus on, you tend to manifest, so think and focus more on happiness and success. I know those are hard words for some. Believe me, I’ve been in the place where if someone said that to me I’d want to punch them in the face. Easy for you to say, I know. But this is where I am now and I hope you will be too.

    Been following your blog since the middle of summer of last year. Somehow, I could always relate to your approach with depression. I don’t agree with everything, but your blogging seems very humane and heartfelt.

    I thought I would share my blog with a fellow blogger.
