“You can’t pour from an empty cup. Take care of yourself first.”
Occasionally people will ask me “How do you keep up with the increasing pressure to communicate through social media as a blogger?” Truth is, I get overwhelmed without a doubt by continuous conversations on multiple platforms. The challenge in blogging for me is that you have to engage a lot. Don’t get me wrong, I love my readers and being able to share my creativity through my blog…I wouldn’t be where I am now without YOU! (LOVE YOU GUYS!)
Although some days, I just want to be a hermit. Us introverts have this natural advantage in knowing how to disconnect. It’s just our way to get our energy back. I feel that it’s hard for extroverts to understand that even though we may have strong social skills/enjoy events and business meetings etc., we would much rather be at home in our pajamas. To get our energy back from being socially drained, we just need quiet time to be back to ourselves. I crave that space because it gives me a fresh perspective and energy to be able to interact with others again. So when I’m quiet and MIA on social media, don’t take it personal! I just have to getaway for a little to refill. Thank you guys for allowing me to keep it real! <3
P.S. A new outfit post is coming up after I take a little mental break. Stay tuned!
