Update + 2018 Plans

Hi everyone, 

I try to keep my very personal life off of the blog but I’m going to be honest- I’m still not doing too well. Eating is very hit and miss, it’s herbal tea only (no caffeine), sleep still eludes me, and tears still very much sneak up and render me hidden away until I feel like I’m a somewhat functioning human being again. Turns out being left behind can make it impossible to be a person. (To anyone who is speaking with someone who is going through a recent break up, please don’t tell them they will find someone else- it’s entirely unhelpful and usually sets me back.)

I’ve now got to figure out what my life is now and give it some sort of direction, and figure out who I actually am. That also includes the blog- I’m still going to keep my blog, but I’ve no idea what it’s going to look like or be. Things that I usually write about are difficult and painful, so my topics are limited right now. In 2018, I think I’m going to start back with 1-2 posts a week and slowly get back to normal as I can. I don’t foresee too many drastic changes but I can’t promise that it won’t strike me later on. The one positive thing to come of this is that I’ve put down a deposit on my very own westie, and should have one by the end of June (depending on which litter I’m in), so doggo and pupper posts will very much be on the blog this year.

To everyone who left a comment on my previous post, thank you for from the very bottom of my heart. It’s too tough for me to respond still but your kind words and thoughts mean so much to me.

I hope you have a wonderful new year,
The Historian

    Stay strong my lovely, nothing will ease your pain right now but you will come out the other side so just make sure you look after yourself during this fragile period. Use the support of those that are close to you, and if you want to vent in writing, there are always internet friends who will listen xx

    they say you should expect to grieve for half the duration of the relationship. Don’t put unreasonable expectations on yourself or allow others to do so.
    You will find all of you is still there, you just shifted during the relationship to make room for him. All of you is still there and will come back together.

    I just want to tell you, pretend you’re Bridget Jones for a bit. Ben & Jerrys for as long as you need. You’ll be OK.
